My future fears have never formed
From scientific findings;
Derisible angst inside me soars,
Dirigible life’s kept grounded.
I have not survived an earthquake,
I have not lived through wars,
Where the breezeblock innocence
Becomes a flooded door.
So fears veer to the abnormal,
Stretched by days alone;
My therapist said I’m hormonal
In a cobbling I didn’t own.
Suffering always flushes men out,
Short of battle or bliss;
More freedom’s in the evening skeins
Than anything I might miss.
