We do this ’til we free us

when there’s yelling
angry swearing
I try to hide

I try to hide
like frogs, water lillies
and the red belly black

the surface tickle
of long scaly fear
dusting the water

dusting my back
amphibious prickle 
sweat,  the zesty 

antithetic rime of it
because of what?
Stories like

childhood nightmares 
unforgettable as envy
the green hum

I'm hiding like frogs
