Running is Belonging

Running is belonging
To a secret weird club.
I pass other runners
On the sidewalk and they nod,
Initiation into a solitary gang of
Concrete trotters
Late-night endorphin junkies
Neon-shoed rock-music blare-ers
Quiet heaving breathers
Who hate standing still
More than they hate moving.
