I tie one end of the twine to you
the other to my sturdiest brown
belt then run away
bearing slightly to the left.
As i run i see the other poles
in the playground, their satellites
set to various speeds and distances.
Some change direction but that
usually knots the cord. Here and there
someone just hops in place. That's a strategy
but they don't seem to get very far.
When tired, they lean on the pole for support.
I run faster. If i strain enough
maybe the wire will stretch a little.
