Fight or Flight 

Good thing
the night passed
between us
gave me time
to cool
collect
my thoughts
compose
and edit what
you needed to hear
which wasn’t
the first thing
I wanted
to say
after the hiccup
in our day
bounced us
out of alignment
and into
the realm of
fight or flight
and today
I am relieved
both of us
decided
to turn around
and walk
slowly
back home.
