Chris Tusa Poems

Fairytale of Fear

Another tornado warning, power lines
down, the same ring around the rosy.
But there’s no pocketful of posies
for this black plague in my brain.

I am like one of those little pigs,
struck dumb with post-traumatic stress,
waiting for my house to be blown in.

[Hata Bildir]
