elemental

Standard

cold bracing wind
rips largely into my chest

I find fortitude in clean crisp pain
Pummeling me into more

miles I need to clock

as sun similarly sears into my skin
I face the potential of cancer daily
much scarier than any
cold I encounter

but there are the miles I
need to clock

snow wind sun sweat
I challenge myself to walk.
