Whiplash

Ups & downs
inviting whiplash

I make my home
in a dreamlike middle ground

like some meditating mediator
complicated

with thought not all
contemplative

some are hurtful
blind rage

ripping off the band-aid
before there’s a scab to pick

lie in wait for bubble to burst
snagged on your jagged edge
