Tonight, I bet you are weaving anxiety angels into the living room carpet with your arms & legs.
Sipping wine. Okay, chugging wine. Tongue-tangled on words like what if.
What if: what if girl slips underwater & jellyfish pour over her scalp,
find their way down her collarbone & onto elbows & shins, pulsing with electricity;
what if girl can’t take the sting : what if girl drowns : what if girl vanishes into the deep :
what if girl becomes long forgotten sediment on the ocean floor?
what if the current doesn’t take her : what if girl floats: what if girl swims : what if
girl grows wings & takes to the sky
