How to Run

I count my steps,
I lose count,
and forget
how many feet
I’ve tried to step.
How little,
how far
it takes me
so much time
to walk
on legs I’ve
took for granted
and for how long?
Like the cripple,
I am, who waits
for the angel
to come and
stir the pond,
that I might walk,
once again,
on legs
that never forgot
how to run.
