as I sleep fitfully
wondering what little thing
will sneak up behind me
and bite me on the ass
what imbecile's thoughtless move
will toss away all for which I've striven
or what secret from deep in the past
will jump out and moon me
as I'm one step from salvation
how can imagine a world without anxiety
or a world with teeth left...?
