Fight or Flight

head under covers,

accumulating air,

bent, fetal

holdign arm’s arm

aware,

keen to echos

house sighs,

murmurs of voices a far off.

Vunerable,

rearranging memories,

watching scaling shadows crawl

engulfing heart, squeeze.

Reality check, imagination, please.

Insomniatic night dream,

pistols,

trigger hand, palm place, perfect fit

scheming puzzling

clever,

hiding places.

3.

Rollover.

Soothing rational self sweet talk,

Moments pass.

Unconciously unconvinced,

wisely pace the house on tiptoe.

timidly approaching foreign corners of the house,

jiggling deadbolts,

freezing in window reflections,

Jack rabbit heart.
