Undeterred

Please, please
Careful steps over roots
Webbed feet on boiling ground

The hush, the darting through branches
When pin-stars stick
And coat the roof of my mouth

Some river, one I asked back to the bank
Still rutted soaked the dirt
Another storm unseen

I run lightly
The speed is for a reason
Dimly

And the speed is for a reason
More harshly, with mist that singes my hair
a slick branch I almost miss

Dragging sheets of mud behind
An aching head
Please keep running
