PAD 8 panic

Panic Attack

I can’t say I’ve ever had one,
but I came close.
on a packed plane.

No room to move.
The overhead seemed too low.
I struggled for breath.

I squirmed and wiggled
and played with my laptop
taking it in and out of the back pocket

until the man in front of me growled.
I leaned back, stilled myself
and breathed in my coffin

until they let me out.
