(mis) Representations of Reality

“Don’t worry,” you told me, “it will be fine.”

My mind races to all the ways it won’t be fine. ¬†All the catastrophic (mis?)representations of events that will unfold in twenty odd days run amuck.

Anxious firings of electrical messengers dancing chaotically:

My brain screams, “It will not be fine!”

My hands type, “okay.”
