Holiday Runners

There's a certain breed who descend 
on our coastal town every public holiday,
they appear late and only in fair weather,
smelling of soap and deodorant , carrying 
pristine hair (for those who have hair),
slicked in sun block, ear buds in, 
they're wrapped in all the brands that
make you lookable, I often wonder if
they run down their home street, 
holiday runners, they're the best
one show only in town.
