She walks in hesitation–National Poetry Month Day 2

She walks in hesitation

Unsure of where her faltering feet should step.

The cracks in the sidewalk threaten to become crevices

down which she will fall

because nothing exists beneath the sidewalks.

The earth beneath the cement deteriorated long ago

Crumbled away, shrinking toward the core of the earth

She walks in hesitation, uncertain if her next step will

bring the apocalypse she’s convinced is coming.
