  as if, by pushing harder, faster,
jumping higher, farther,
      lifting heavier, longer
i can somehow burst this brain
      out of this body
fix the fractures
      in this breaking mind, 
kaleidoscope shattering

 explosion, breath scarlet,
      sweat streaking through
      the meaning of life
defined by one more heartbeat
      one more leap
one more rending breath
       muscles straining into flight,
throbbing life

      only in this: survival
      (mind invincible, 
      thought defeated by body striving)
