Adrenaline

Adrenaline

From might or fury
What fury might
Prevail in haste
When holds are not
Barred.

Fire or frying pan
What cast iron
Will sting and
Impale blunt will
Force.

Furious skull or
Scrap of steel
What arms may be
Taken in ferocity
Or fear.

For fight and flight,
For fluid spilled,
What tempered vein
Or tapped artery
Flows

Fraught with fright
At the prospect
Of finding a
Frail fence to hide
Behind.

Fervor, when hydraulics
Pump in the tubes,
Pressure building in
Pipes. Primal pasts
Exhumed.

So what arms would
Be taken? A skull?
An iron skillet? Or
Perhaps a frail
Sword?

Fool, there’d be
No time to take,
No time to think,
But when pressure
Mounts,

Primal instincts
Possess. What
Might or fury
Might power
Fury.

Only a metallic,
Copper taste left
On the roof of a
Parched
Mouth.
