What The A Stands For

365 in one year? That’s impressive,
Even for me. I guess I’m excited
About facilitating a writing workshop.
Today, I was still moving–
Via public transportation. That’s tough.
At least on my arms.

I take on too much on my shoulders–
The A doesn’t stand for Atlas.
I wish I had a Greek name. I enjoy
Mythology. My friend calls me Ajax–
That’s what the A stands for today.
Ajax or Alone. I think both are fitting.
