awake the bear
living there, behind your chest
the one you can't outrun

cause when you scream,
that is the bear
leveling your grief

now you awake
it is a snake inside your underside
it’s clenched round you like a rope

a quickened breath
the mathematics of resistance:
take a walk, count to 10

if I am just an animal like you

hit with a brick
stuck staring at the ceiling
the wolves are in your house

the sky is white, there is a switch somewhere you cannot find
so you wait and you howl

blood in your mouth
the softest spot inside your crown
you know that you must run

and so you drive
quell the beast against the riverside
level down, even out

dear, I am just an animal like you

or maybe I’ve been blue
spinning a cocoon of drug store lies
wake me, shake me, love
they're coming for my beeswax heart

left there for dead
the sparrow's cape laid open
across the tired shore

a small brigade
feel the wings within your rib cage
amble up, stir the storm

here I am, just an animal…
