Below the Diaphragm: A Poem

anxiety;

deep, roiling inside me

below the diaphragm

triggered by the slightest

make believe

fear;

a word,

a phrase,

pretend occurrences on the television.

Days and weeks

and months

of healing pass.

I am alright;

on the other side of mercy.

and then

anxiety;

deep, roiling inside me

below the diaphragm
