Sunday resolved

Going for a run so I start to gun the motor,
get my arse up off the sofa
then think,
who the fuck is it I’m kidding with ideas
forever skidding off the plate?

hesitate belongs to me
wait and see is mine
as is another time
get your own melody
leave me talking to myself
watching the TV.

I’m getting old
what the fuck I wanna run for?
exercise for me is done for.
