Fears

Courage isn’t the absence of fear. It’s being afraid and doing it anyway.

Shadows leap and lift
from the ground. While
the world spins on a tilt.
I’m still trying to figure out
how.

Dolls sink and turn colors
while deep in the closet
something whines. Still,

she can think of
only one thing,

How can I make this
thing divine?
