Tea and Crumpets

Standing toe
to
toe
against
your fears
guarantees
a knockout.

you may survive,
and stagger about
round after round,
but you never had
a chance.

Me,
I invited my fear to breakfast,
he was held up
so we made it a late brunch,
how shocked he was
when my death rushed over
to settle the bill.

you see,
death was worried
I would miss
my 11:00 O’Clock.
