GO!

GO!


the feet is a snail

of an angry journey

that whips with a horizon

star celebrating.


take up the steel

that beats in your chest

and tell the fuming road

your slime is your self. 


the paw is not you

for a hare of the task,

and the miles condemn you

sure not of your slide. 


feast on, your star,

with the inch of your feet

and grow on your task,

a horizon beaming. 


the tortoise is a lion 

of earth's glinting win

where man is a star

of a faithful feet. 


so take up your steel

and smile your slime on;

nike, your guardian wings,

"just do it" his score words.
