TRIGGERS

Triggers

A word, a nuance
A look, a glance
Few lines, verse,
A haiku, gesture
A hug, a shrug
And
Then
A
Breach!

Floodgates of
Memory’s oil spill
Inundates mind
A raging virus
Attacks scabs of time
Prods and pokes
Mind from
Position
Fetal

Hurtful memories
Loss of loved ones
Fights, slights
Aborted flights
Mini wars,
Big wars
Tragedies
Attacks
Confront

Cornered I put up hands
Shield head body
Mind bared begs
Mercy piteously
Silently screaming
Halt this gush
As it will crush
Me unless I go
Fetal again
