Meticulously Anxious

A friend of mine

Went from being a

Free spirited hippy who

Played jazz and

Laughed freely and

Ate bread

To Being a tuba player

In a military band

Who wears a uniform and

Worries about his weight —

Which I guess really means–

Not eating bread.

I wonder where he went?

If he isn’t gone completely

I suspect he is hiding

Somewhere deep like a

Vein in his prostate

Nobody will investigate

Anyway, I kinda miss him

He was so kind and selfless

Now he is just

Meticulously anxious
