What are you afraid of

Can anger and arousal
live in the same body at once
at war with the one
we can not live without
feeding off of one
needing us most

scavengers, all
vultures in our midst
how do we not fill
that white hot hole of need
walking away
from a sure thing

maybe because
we fear the fire
even animals
fear
in the midst of
instinctual hunger
