A Half-blind Jogger

I was briefly inveigled to share
all with that visually-impaired
jogger – my imperfections – all
his were UPPER-CASED across
his shirt – a self-ironed transfer
of words to warn of oncoming
lack of vision [but my ongoing
predicaments remained mum
to hide pain] – they will not bar
his way to 7.5k of pummelling
pavements – I will keep it close
to my own chest & not trip him
