Tracks

Shhhhhh, I tell myself

Shoes off, turn the latch so softly, slowly

Listen for the sleeping bear, is he awake in the front room chair?

I tip toe up the stairs

I took a drive, to have a cigarette, clear my mind, listen to music loudly, to be alone, to be away from him

He times me if I pick up medication or lip gloss

He times me if I meet my best friend for drinks

He tracks my movements through the stairwell, the hallway

He stirs, a cough in the snoring breaths, an acknowledgment of my movements as I use ballet to make it down the hall

I lock my door, I have to. To feel safe, so he doesn't accuse and shout or throw things about

I change my clothes and text a friend or write some words for here

Sit on my balcony, it's 2am and stare
