The Woodpecker

I met a woodpecker on my run today.

He would not let me take his picture, no matter how carefully I snuck up
Even after I explained he could be on Facebook,
He would have none of it.

Which is why I cannot show you, I can only state
That I met a woodpecker on my run today.

I went for a run last night, and felt like I was drowning.

I was running on the street but I felt like I was screaming inside and no-one could hear me, like I was treading water and waving for help and about to go down for what could be the last time. I didn't know what would happen or who would save me.

I ran, but as I ran all I could see was my struggling self screaming for help. I felt overwhelmed with anxiety. I didn't know what my next steps were. I didn't know where to look for help.

Then a sudden thought struck me. Fuck this, I thought.
