Fight or flight

Only you can change it.
Brush dead leaves from your eyes,
Spew air and fear and dust.

Only you can change it.
Feel the old familiar beats begin,
Bile coursing through tight veins. 

Only you can change it.
Breathe. Bite your pale, shallow lips.
Push heavy earth towards the light.

Ball tight your fists,
Fight or flight.
Fight or flight.
