expire.

you took
too long.
i hoped
and hoped.

but you took
too long;
and you took
everything.

am i running?
my ankle hurts
and my hips grind;
i’m not running.

you took
too long.
the splits
were too slow.

i took
what i could;
i couldn’t leave
you nothing.

but you took
too long.
and i hoped
and hoped.
