Co-exist


I don’t know
how to
tell you this
but
today
I woke up
and I couldn’t remember
anything
that was a problem
only the pending run
ahead
I flew out the door
down the street
and onto the track
over and over
again
I tried
to project my body to another space
in time
like
not where I’m standing
like not where I was running two seconds ago
like far far away around the track
right away
and it felt good
and I felt clean
with fresh air I jammed down my throat
as I sucked in every breath
to propel myself faster and faster
yes
I am afraid of remembering my problems
like
these problems
that reoccur
and I can think of no way to fix
must just be unfixable
and so if I can
I embrace you
and forget you
as often as possible
you’re just the fly on the wall
and I don’t kill you
don’t want to kill you
we just co-exist
and make the best of it
