One for the count

Two for the route

Three for the map

Dream of the chute.


One for the hill

Two for the climb

Three for the slide

Dream of the rhyme.


One for the splash

Two for the pool

Three for the swim

Dream of the fool.


One for the wish

Two for the hope

Three for the love

Dream four: the scope.








It’s in the news!
This race will be
of many shoes
and energy.

PF Flyers
for P .F. Chang’s
courting buyers
or making change?

A marathon…
…some number K,
and people on
the streets today.

Their heart rates rise
and breaths are fast.
All bodies wise—
even the last.

NOTE: The P. F. Chang’s China Bistro Rock ‘n Roll Marathon is taking place in Phoenix on Sunday, January 18, 2015. Good luck, strong runners! May the poetry be with you!
