It is a Chase With No End

Published in the 2010 Anthology of Poems:

It is a chase with no end.
He is faster than she.
And she is tired of running.
He runs on, faster and faster.
Feet pounding in the sand.
Not looking back-
She becomes smaller and smaller.
The distance larger and larger.
And when he does turn around,
When he is out of breath,
She will catch up and
She will outrun him.
The rules always change.
And suddenly before he realizes
He is chasing her.
But she doesn’t stop running.
