Anxiety Problem

You might
have a problem
with anxiety
if you daydream
about how nice
it would be
if a car
or a semi truck
rear ended you
on the way
to the soirée
where you
will be expected
to do nothing
but speak about
the things you love
which should be
easy because
all you need to do
is speak your truth
and smile
and shake hands
and thank everyone
for coming—
and if it were only
that easy
there wouldn’t be
any reason
to have your therapist
on speed dial
but you don’t have
a therapist yet
and you promise
yourself
if you survive
the night
you’ll get one.
