A Tiny Tim beneath Goliath
A flounder with a hook in its mouth
A walnut in a nutcracker's jaw
A sheet, pale between a scissor's blades

A father frantically searching the school
A brother throwing his wallet at the cabby
A sister raking her perfect hair with perfect nails
A mother running by the cemetery without looking inside

A husband running through the mall for the perfect gift
A wife hesitating to buy rose petals and scented candles
A boyfriend worrying about the weather before a camping trip for two
A girlfriend breathing deeply before pulling off her bathrobe

An actor backstage
A musician warming up
A painter twirling the brush
A writer chewing her lips

Nervous
Gonnamessup
Worried
Whatifwhatifwhatif
Scared
of
everything

But most of all Angry
Whymewhymewhyme
…?
