"Sometimes Feelings" by Halle Dana

Sometimes I get so excited,

I feel like I could eat a lightbulb.

I’ve sat with dullness in my belly,

Yet some things still jolt me: 

Whizz like lightning by my ear. 

Sometimes I breathe in such giddiness, 

My body shimmers, heat from the ground. 

Hot spices; the richness of chili and lime, 

My finger kisses the mist on the glass.

The sound of the bottle opener, the hiss. 

Sometimes I want to feel safe, 

I have made up my blanket cocoon. 

It feels like if I catch all this energy, 

Trap it in a small glass jar, 

I could write anthems til daybreak.
