Predawn Race

After dark, before light

Eyes heavy, open

Looking into past and future

Chasing peace

Running from the relentless regular

That always comes

Expecting, demanding

In bold red letters

While I lie awake counting

Seconds, minutes, hours

Holding my breath

Praying I will cross the bridge

Before it is closed

Because even 2 hours

Will.measure the day
