Procrusteana

 

things I am scared about:

 

slow internet connection,

forgetting passwords, colour,

 

stepping off electric staircases

a moment too early;

 

full stop’s claw which follows

everything we forget to be for each other.

 

I fear unpronounceable names,

houses where nobody lives;

 

I fear befriending monsters,

past tense verbs in statements about future.
