Surreal Survival

this instinct
invokes the fear of death
a hardwired system
to flee
to survive
but you are not
running from a predator
you are at a red light
with a siren screaming
under your skin
a screeching ambulance 
ripping through veins
or maybe you dropped the blueberries
on the kitchen floor
and your whole body clenches
into a fist of primal terror
a cauldron of panic boils over
scorching your insides
you are hardwired
to escape
at all costs
but you are just at a red light
clutching the steering wheel
like a life raft
in a flash flood
drowning in your car

so you leave the blueberries
on the floor
bracing yourself on the
refrigerator door.

“Carving pumpkins?” Dan repeated, finally managing to get the smaller pumpkin off of himself. “Is this some sort of Muggle thing?”
