Morning Run

Everyday she wakes before the sun
Exercise would do me good
So she runs
With her Apple watch leerily tracking
Her every move
Go on, twelve thousand steps done
Three thousand more to
Hit fifteen – faster, pillowface
It screams
She doesn’t stop, but when the sun
Comes up
She sees her shadow
And cries.
