Anxiety | My Smoke Alarm

This anxiety of mine beeps
incessantly when the battery
needs replacing.

Screeches when the stirfry
heats up. When
steam from the shower

escapes the bathroom.
Is that dish fattening?
What if someone breaks

into my apartment
and slices open
the hemp curtain

with a switchblade?
Is it waterproof?

Toxic? How does that extinguisher
work again? Where’s the fire?
