Fear


Doors close.
Faucets turn.
Thunder boils over.

Fix the leaks
So the house won't flood.

Straighten the bricks
So the neighbors won't know.

Dig a grave,
An empty solace.

Hold on to breath
And with her
F
A
L
L

The floorboards
Don't tremble.
Feet never touch.

Roll over the stairs on waves.
Dive into the living room.

Look from the window
Into the dark.
A place where breath
Is everywhere.

Set her free
And watch her rise.

Let sleep in
Through the shutters.

The neighbors will know where to
Put you.
