Sprung Up

They have sprung up overnight, these runners.  They went to seed as bankers or dentists or consultants of this or that, but they have sprouted as Saturday morning joggers, geared in reflector-striped coats, lycra leggings,  spotless shoes, and earbuds.  There are whole fields of their ambulatory flowers.  They cover the sidewalks in reds and yellows, loping gardens of colour that drift, inevitably, into coffee shops and bakeries and specialty grocery stores, then home again, withered as soon as sprouted.
