Running Poem R047

My 3-60 loop –
Felt like a 4-20 loop
At that running speed

Notes to this poem…

The dashed numbers are just to help you read them the way you need to so as to get a haiku out of this poem. They’re legitimate ways to say the numbers, just steering you to the right option.

3-60 is 360 degrees or a circle, representing my circular-ish running route. Not perfect circle, just round loop.

4-20 references marijuana. Not that I know what that feels like cause I have never tried pot, but I hear it makes everything slow down. That’s how I felt running at, more or less, 6/7th my usual pace today. The 360 and 420 references are also mathematically accurate in that 360 is 6 times 60, while 420 is 7 times 60. Doing long division by time in my head while running and seeing my pace was about 6/7th of my usual pace was actually where I got the idea for this 360 and 420 thing, then connecting the symbolic references!

A running high can get you this, but a pot high? Heh. I doubt it! I’ll take running any day! 😉

The R-series poems were composed while I was out running, in an effort to find time for writing in a life that is always getting busier.
