Break Out

tomatocozy.jpg

 

Panic throws up her

force field and solidifies

resistance to the truth;

denial hardens her

.

tortoise-shell exterior.

Her heart has been spared

in this temporary cocoon,

but greenhouse emissions

.

end up blowing a lot of hot

air, and little else of any

real substance. Her foray

into the real world

.

can’t be put off forever,

or she will stunt in her

space capsule, grow gangly

in her soul’s quest for

.

a fruitful life. She hasn’t

yet tasted sun skin to skin,

or roots flying free, or

she would break out.
