Angeles City Library

Yes we have WiFi, use this computer
But I need it for my phone
No phone, computer, sir. Only computer
Well I guess I’m on my own


What’s there to do in Angeles City?
Get Lost? Wander? Despair?
With terrible maps and bad advice
One can do all of those there


I am a bag full of pathways
One hundred directions
and a handful of plans


Walls of soldiers
Ring the room
Hands in the center
Evoke a gloom
Guide at my elbow
Guard at the door
My name in a book
I pace the floor
The girl at the desk
Blocks my escape
I came to see art
Now I’m on tape
