napowrimo day 24: ekphrasis

Should I never,
turn and,
attack.

I’d walk even further,
with your breath,
at my back.

I would run,
from you,
forever.

See everyone,
reach everything,
faster.

Though I would,
see things,
more clearly.

Should I stop,
leaving so,
quickly.

Would I meditate,
stop wishing,
stop yearning?

Shed burdens,
start listening,
start learning?

How can I know
where I’m going
looking back?

Shouldn’t I
turn and
attack?
