Dionysian

The attic hatch slides open
  & all the doors are slamming
                                         
               the wind s|h|o|v|es past
                all lights flicker out

            glowing eyes
              silhouettes
                & stunted children follow —->

      Hypochondria
        Atychiphobia
          Agoraphobia
             follow

          I am breathing with my eyes wide
                                                        shut
                   a lesson in tenacious temerity
             always waiting for the storm
              to arrive knowing I’ve survived
                                  worse

        I accept that I need you &
        I’ve determined this can’t deteriorate
        / shift like sand in an hourglass
        I accept risk where it’s worth taking
                   for you I’ll go in blind
       just to see what’s on the other side

a match made |
