In this long form narrative poem, the speaker is led out into the wilderness and encounters panic in the form of the god Pan. Pan appears in Greek mythology as a raucous god of revelry at times and as moody and destructive in his anger and brutality at other times. This is how panic attacks find her.
In writing this project I wanted a character I could tack the panic on, a character I could address, understand, and defeat. Instead what I found was myself, and wildness.
