Don’t Panic

The music is too loud
So you focus on your breathing
But this room is too hot
And no one has showered in days

And so you go inward
And you argue
with yourself
You will not
You will not
You will not
Not today

You’ve barely
Left the house
In weeks

And now
you’re here
Where you
Should be

Even left
The dog
At home

But the music
Is too loud
And the air
Stinks in
Your breathing

And you know
You will remember the
emptiness of this
full feeling
The next time you
Consider leaving home.
