Did you ever?

Sit on a bench?

And cross,

Your ankles,

Behind you?



Right them again?

Just in case.

You forgot.

Got up,

And fell?

And sometimes you just trust the joy your body provides.

This is something that has been on my mind a little bit as I have been getting better. Anxiety is, of course, a mental illness and yet I have always been fascinated by the way it affects me physically.

A panic attack for me always starts in my fingertips. That one back in the summer was so bad I could barely walk.

I’m better now. A lot better than I have been for a long time.

Still frightened to cross my ankles behind me though!
