Fear

 Fear of seeing a police car pull into the drive.
Fear of falling asleep at night.
Fear of not falling asleep.
Fear of the past rising up.
Fear of the present taking flight.
Fear of the telephone that rings in the dead of night.
Fear of electrical storms.
Fear of the cleaning woman who has a spot on her cheek! Fear of dogs I've been told won't bite.
Fear of anxiety! Fear of having to identify the body of a dead friend.
Fear of running out of money.
Fear of having too much, though people will not believe this.
Fear of psychological profiles.
Fear of being late and fear of arriving before anyone else.
Fear of my children's handwriting on envelopes.
Fear they'll die before I do, and I'll feel guilty.
Fear of having to live with my mother in her old age, and mine.
Fear of confusion.
Fear this day will end on an unhappy note.
Fear of waking up to find you gone.
Fear of not loving and fear of not loving enough.
Fear that what I love will prove lethal to those I love.
Fear of death.
Fear of living too long.
Fear of death.
I've said that.

Villanelle: The Psychological Hour

 I had over prepared the event,
that much was ominous.
With middle-ageing care I had laid out just the right books.
I had almost turned down the pages.
Beauty is so rare a thing.
So few drink of my fountain.
So much barren regret, So many hours wasted! And now I watch, from the window, the rain, the wandering busses.
"Their little cosmos is shaken" - the air is alive with that fact.
In their parts of the city they are played on by diverse forces.
How do I know? Oh, I know well enough.
For them there is something afoot.
As for me; I had over-prepared the event - Beauty is so rare a thing.
So few drink of my fountain.
Two friends: a breath of the forest.
.
.
Friends? Are people less friends because one has just, at last, found them? Twice they promised to come.
"Between the night and the morning?" Beauty would drink of my mind.
Youth would awhile forget my youth is gone from me.
(Speak up! You have danced so stiffly? Someone admired your works, And said so frankly.
"Did you talk like a fool, The first night? The second evening?" "But they promised again: 'To-morrow at tea-time'.
") Now the third day is here - no word from either; No word from her nor him, Only another man's note: "Dear Pound, I am leaving England.
"
