Panic

Beatbeatbeat.

A bundle of horse hooves
gallops recklessly
across a heart
once made of paper
and since turned
to twisted bits
of rusted wire.

Breathebreathebreathe.

Anxious strangles my throat,
constricting it
beyond air
or microparticles
of moments
where I saw your silhouette
refracted against a
thorn horizon.

Beatbeatbeat.

This timbered landscape
does nothing to ease
this sea salt ache
crashing its waves
against my heart.

Breathebreathebreathe.

All that’s left
is your name lying flat
against the panic.
