Startles

My startles are as hefty
as a thick bowl of stew
with all the fixings
i don’t just scare
i jump out of my skin
and into the ceiling
when i run into
my rarely seen roommate
at three am, we both say
the same thing
“Oh, you scared me!”
“Good,” I muse to him,
“Finally, we found
something in common.”
