named not after the goddess, but the shoe,

by a boy who liked to run.

Nike, the beagle, ran.

as did the boy, now man…

both became lost,

yet, perhaps the goddess was looking out for them anyway –

too tightly laced onto the souls of their being –

for both came safely home…

One runs here, on water,

the other, now, on Mt. Olympus.
