the constantly paranoid

the constantly paranoid


they stand in forests

so there’s always something to knock on in every direction


their rule of thumb is

within arm’s length

at all times


just be mindful of the splinters


though they toughen up your knuckles

and your ability to tell knock knock jokes


their second rule of thumb is

to never mention that problems are starting to go away



the problems

love being talked about

but not in that manner


the redwoods here are tall

and make a unique sound when rapped against


our fists

so tiny by comparison

much like our problems

by comparison to ourselves
