Poem #58 of 365

Eating a lemon bar
while others finished
a 26-mile marathon

may have made me look
piggish and sluggish,

but I must suggest that
my gratified smile
and amped-up pep

--after i ate it--

was something I shared
in common with runners
in cowtown today.

(yes, i ate a lemon bar downtown
while others panted toward the finish line
in Saturday's Cowtown Marathon.)
