An Unparalleled Duet

The cello brushing up against the strings 

An Italian tune tonight

The treadmill anxiously awaiting the runner

Tempo increasing

The athlete set

One foot in front of the other 

The notes already a mile ahead

The feet frantically catching up

Nearing the coda a Spanish melody pops in 

Sweat filling the belt beneath

Footsteps unparalleled

One missed note

One extra lap

One ahead of the other 

The final note played

The body still working

A cappella

A duet
