Fear Bites

This morning
At the orchard
After marauding geese had forced her into my arms
She bit me and
I was reminded of how I respond to stress when I’m at home
With one trip to the kitchen
After the other
Filling my mouth with whatever I can get my hands on
In a pinch
Even the collar of my shirt
If I was surrounded by hungry geese
Small enough to be picked up and
Didn’t have Goldfish crackers or a granola bar
I suppose I would bite too
