angst cycle (iii) — [В] (iv)

if i write
i know i’m going to get battered

i suppose
it will be like
running through the rainstorm
to get to the house

get the nastiness
out of the way
leave no nagging doubts

leave no nagging doubts

ok

what i want to know
is why i didn’t
consider all this
asleep

but i woke up
with the same questions
as when i went to sleep

i usually wake up
with at least a strategy
if not an answer

leave no nagging doubts
