..of exhaustion

do you know how it is when you are running to stand still, and still have the time to enjoy the view?

your body aches-
partly physically, a little
headlines and deadlines
hover constantly above you,

Yet you glance back at them over your shoulder, your knowing smile befuddling them. The feeling of reality coursing through you, the pleasure of the chaos seeping in. Your eyes are weary, but they do not falter. The head is heavy, but it bobs along. The muscles slacken, yet are taut with expectation and the awareness of need. Feet have a spring in their step, as much feeling the pressure on them as buoyed by it, and knowing they must absorb it all.

When you feel yourself pulled inexorably...into, and by the energy...
