Anything helps

This could be the beginning of a poem ---

I saw a man in Santa Fe
standing outside a Church's Chicken restaurant.
I saw him day after day.
He wore khaki shorts, a golf shirt
and he held a sign saying "Anything helps."
And I wonder, really?
What is anything? What does it help?
Does it help end this madness?
Does it help you get up in the morning?
Does it help you keep going when you're out of breath?
Dude is the altitude messing with your head?
Anything helps, huh?
Anything is anything and it has to help, I know.
Anything can be a kick in the pants.
Anything can be a slap to the face.
Anything might not be what you're expecting....
