NaPoWriMo #3

I can’t explain
my chest                      right
middle of my back
is this what a heart
attack feels like?
begging not to be a
stereotype        headline:
fat woman has heart attack
on bus
stress?  I was thinking,
should I, should I not
change inside this cage?
a muscle pulled?
sudden                        sudden
I walk away,
it subsides
panic gives way to tears
relief and fear
it is small         it is there
curled up         center of my back
I can’t explain.
