WiltedI knew. I knew she was behind me. I heard the old floorboards of my classroom creek for every step that she took, drawing closer and closer. Her knife drug across the sleek, wooden desks creating a disturbing screech; like fingernails on a chalkboard and the crunch of fresh snow. There was no escaping from under this small teacher’s bureau to safety. I was on the second floor – the window was not an option – and I had no chance of trying to bolt for the door. Trapped, terrified, hopeless and eventually dead, that was me. A fist was slugged against the top of the bureau. I bit down on the sleeve of my sweater to try to calm myself.

be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
