"Why am I so anxious? And then it hits me. I’m not anxious, I’m lonely. And I’m lonely in some…"

““Why am I so anxious? And then it hits me. I’m not anxious, I’m lonely. And I’m lonely in some horribly deep way and for a flash of an instant, I can see just how lonely, and how deep this feeling runs. And it scares the shit out of me to be so lonely because it seems catastrophic; seeing the car just as it hits you.””

Eventually you start hoping for the car. Punctuation seems better than freefall.

I had a biopsy today. Its probably nothing but some feelings are happening.

No reason to be afraid,
my almost mighty doctor reasons.
I nod, thinking that woman’s dying
must come in seasons,
thinking that living is worth buying.
I walk out, scuffing a raw leaf,
kicking the clumps of dead straw
that were this summer’s lawn.
Automatically I get in my car,
knowing the historic thief
is loose in my house
and must be set upon.
excerpt from The Operation, by Anne Sexton

I’ll add this moment of hilarity: After it was over and I was just kind of curled up in pain, the nurse brought me a pad and the doctor said, with legit excitement, “It’s a thick one!”

It took me until today to realize That’s what she said.
