Fighting Fear


something inside me relaxes

enough to let the bats unfold

preternatural claws against my chest

ripping flesh and bone to shreds


I hang on to my dignity long enough

to seek the comfort of solitude

the moon reflects benevolence upon my bed

the bats refold their wings and sigh


they will only fly in dreams tonight

gripping tight to my unwieldy thoughts

feeding forcibly on fractured memories

tearing fears into small undigested morsels
