let it be a double-,

let it be a double-,
no, triple-
feature afternoon,
allow our minds
to run numb,
up and down the
staircase of
our scariest
perhaps even
trip on a
landing or
two, free falling

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: staircase


there is an old, new

there is an old, new
paralysis – a hitchhiker
on the most bearable
days, a parasite on
the worst – that pins
down a hand, an
arm, a leg, a morsel
of every hour, crushing
the cells and membranes
of day. we feel
sick about it all
the time, emerge
from the stupor
spasmodically to ask
one another for best and
worst case scenarios,
readjust our negativity
bias for a version
of survival
