the shrub frightening

When
on a walk
Without
glasses

you get
a glimpse
of a
tall shrub

but,
blurry eyes
see instead,
a predator.

parasympathetic
nervous system

ally frost mage

casts
flash freeze on
your heart
for protection.

it
doesn’t
feel
bad?
exactly.

you know
the feeling
,

Breezy night
hands
hugged
lovingly
around
the organ
responsible
for running
you.

adrenal glands
send their
damp chill
lightning-strike
reminder

–you do
want
to live.
