Evening Nerves

On this night of trepidation
my heavy-set heart
makes it nearly impossible to breathe
and I am envious
of those who know without knowing
think without thinking
as though simplicity and a life all too
monotonous is just what they need
to keep themselves going
when I would surely slow down
as my blood slug, slug, slugs
out of the pipes of my heart
hoping just to claw my way back
to a steady surface to rest
my salty eyelashes on as I count
down the difficulties
envying
the past ignorance I utilized
to make myself build this
Lincoln Log shelter
where the sun burns into the wood
splitting apart the fibers that
lick my porcelain skin
making my true vulnerability
even more public.
