The Cloak

Invisible cloak of faux composure

Drapes her shoulders daily

Methodically navigating her day

Following orders, completing tasks

Encouraging patience

Supporting calm, reason.

Internal reality differs.

Yin to yang

Hovering perpetually one breath

Single wayward thought

From suffocating sobs

Palpitating panic

Fingernails clench, clutch the cloak
