  • she has this sense about her at times
    call it whatever you like
    but often she can tell when things are not right in her simple world
    she buries it
    she pushes it aside
    she ignores it
    but sooner or later it shows itself
    and then
    she has to deal with it

    and just like the dog
    who buries her socks
    and his cookies in her small yard
    and then heads out
    sometimes late at night
    to retrieve his prize
    she has to retrieve her fears
    dig them up
    and face them
    and sometimes it just sucks
