I can’t help feeling anxious
I go from zero to panicked
with record speed
faster than I can realize it’s happening.
I thought I was feeling good about the day as I was leaving
before I stopped myself tapping over and under the steering wheel
realizing I was actually stressed out
my neck was tight
and shoulders were bunched.
Cue the tension in my forehead.
And I thought I was feeling good.
Can’t remember how I got over it.
Looked at the clouds, and the sky
where the tree tops meet
thought about something else.
