Panic rising

1 a.m. Setting my mind back to earlier in the day when I could feel the panic rising. Everything falling to pieces. Complete instability. The ground swerving under my feet. Vulnerabilities surfacing. And then I catch myself. Find my feet. Recalibrating boundaries. I shift attention, and the panic subsides. The dance is the full-body sensation of that panic rising. The rains came down today. I ran in the rain in the morning and biked in the rain in the late afternoon. Cooling. Finding ease as I move through falling cloud.
