In the gym

Ambition stretches, launches with bent knees into the air
Perspiring, tasting gold hung around necks
Leaning into practiced positions, tried over and over again,
Until perfection is second nature and rewards
No mere compensation for a life spent
Striving body and soul, optimistic
Always, always-go . . .
