October Workout



This morning
I reinvented
the runner inside
it was fall everywhere
leaves everywhere on Buehler’s trail

but it was almost shirts off weather
high, 60s and humid
the kind of perfectibility that the Piedmont produces in October
an array of leaves softening the trail beneath

I warmed up
down around the fitness loop
thought
I should run my K’s here

but I want the track
for pop and speed—precision

I’ve not worked out in some weeks and I seek a measuring rod
where am I really
not
where would I like to be
or where should I be
no 
who am I
today 
as runner

Results were fair, but the morning was perfect
And some perfect
must always be enough
