by Kevin Coons

holed up in anchorage
for the winter
im trying to write some bullshit poem
about the beauty of falling snow

it's hours i'm at it and
sometimes i forget the simple things
like sincerity/
like feeding myself

so soon i'll have to walk
out into the snowstorm
out into the meat-grinder

it's hours i'm at it and
out my window
it's just getting colder
and darker

but inside
I can't hear myself think
over the thunder of my empty stomach
