After six months, this poem a day business is still hard.





He’s in a panic now:
six months of running
everyday eating food
engineered to make
his body this lean
food tasting of paper
packing material, twine
six months of early
to bed, early to rise
pressed in a lane
against other bodies
spare, leaner than his
and he cannot find
the will to start
