Little Things

Feet

It’s a little thing,

really

a pebble in my shoe

on a long run

Distracting at first.

Destructive finally.

Left to its own devices

Crippling

Causing me to hobble

limp

halt

To continue is to risk

permanent injury

Perhaps

failure to finish.

It slips and slides

sometimes lost

in spaces.

But perfectly poised

it pounds flesh

exerting pressure

far beyond its

apparent magnitude.

It’s just a little thing

tiny, really

Easy to ignore.

Except when it isn’t.
