And the anxiety stirs as I sit at my new job

My heart racing, feeling like it’s going to leap out of my mouth and run away

I’m shaking, partly because of the caffeine

Just me and one other

And I am the therapist responsible

For the crisis unit

The crisis walk in clinic

Psych evaluation calls

And the phones

And the anticipation of being off work

The peace of driving home

And walking through the door bombarded with delicious odors of holiday celebrations

And the beautiful faces of my family
