Drive Home, or, Anxiety

I’ve started taking
A new way home
From work lately.
I was seeing too many
Cops when I would go
The other way and
It was giving me anxiety.
And I know that I
Shouldn’t say that.
Because I know that
Saying that is like
Admitting that I have
Anxiety in the first place.
Maybe I do.
But I’m sure as shit
Not about to deal
With it right now.
Unless I have to.
Maybe I should.
I think that I have to.
Because, honestly,
Even talking about
It makes me feel
A little anxious.
I have to go do
Something else.
