anxiety

it’s mostly in the stomach

the gurgle and tightness

the waiting and

the back of throat

closing

it’s mostly in the stomach

the fear and antici-

pation

patience

breathe breathe breathe

but the chest is tight

and every inhale is work

and exhale is quick

shallow breaths

swallowing

dry mouth

forehead breaks out

in cold sweat

achy

sleepless

mind won’t stop
