"Write a poem that reflects fear."
Remember it clearly. My sister and I were watching
The Twilight Zone, trying to stay brave. The episode
opened with a woman lying in a hospital bed, face
wrapped in bandages. Tension built as nurses began
to remove the bandage. The woman was beautiful.
Shadowed doctors recoiled in horror. 'Sorry Doctor,
no change'. Then camera pans to doctors. We shrieked!
Their faces were all distorted like pigs.
To this day, we still cannot watch that episode.
rumble in tree
spring branches filled with birdsong
hawk invades, sparrows split
