panic attack

i didn’t ask for this heavy wool coat on a summer day
yet here i am wearing it again

and no matter how i warp and buckle
contort arms and roil shoulders
the more it clings with the seeming ferocity of spite

it is like those early days
when the struggle to first tie the laces of my shoes
would bring me to the point of tears

panic attack
