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

 

they

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
