Mikaela Castledine #322 Project 366 (44 to go!)

Whoever thought that  I could do this
unfit and without training
push through the marathon stages
blown and likewise heaving
staggering in the straight
and turning over the sweetmouthed pebble of thought
that I could lie down now expiring
without finishing even within sight of the end
if only I could find some way to lower myself to the ground
and stop each footfall following
and not notice the tiny heatspark in the back of my head
which says perhaps my best is still to come
or maybe I'm about to have a stroke
