I am just around the corner

in your peripheral vision

I am loner caught in crowd.


I am lifted eyes too late

a persistent, inner frisson

I am quiet in the loud.


I am fist of opportunity

stilled by indecision

only knocking—knees without


and though second-guessing

I am bustin’ out of prison—

and I’m coming for you now.
