I Know You're Here

by Emma McClelland

Here I am again,

dry retching from the driver's seat

over the clean green grass.

I wait for it to pass,

the vomit and the loss.

I swallow.

Swallow.

The worker ants take the dread

from my head to my gut,

to the small ball-bearing of balance.

And I will fall

just for a moment

whilst your ghost revists me,

blocks the only way to breath

and smothers me.

Nausea.

Here I am again.
