Written Under Duress

Everywhere's a Library
in Anchorage
Buses, Bookstores, Back Alleys
From birdhouses in the 'burbs
to churches in the city
Everywhere's a Library
in Anchorage


Afloat, floating
Adrift, drifting
I'm not in trouble
It's just a feeling
Existential freedom
Distress, stressing
I need to know
Becalmed or calming?


I did not eat a calorie
for the day yesterday
While I did my fast
One whole day went past
Did I waste the day?
I certainly can't say
A body pained in bed
Does wonders for the head.
