A Trip in Anchorage

The world got smaller
when the hand-crab crawled
across the diner counter

into the can of sugar 
the waitress stopped then yelled 
time to leave, running outside

falling in a snowbank
believing the world was shrinking
after seeing the tiny beer-can next to his face

the crab began moving again
first slowly then faster
scurrying sideways across the snow
