scared.

Come visit!

scared

scared,
not of 
spiders

or speeding
cars spitting
asphalt,

how martinis
whore inside
her-

not at
fault.

fear comes
from hole,
that grows 
wider and 
deeper more
i know about
history, and 
it’s use
for me

misuse-
abuse,

wrapped in burlap
sack and whacked
for laughs

i’m scared
you see,

of where it 
leads.
