Stress

  1. Fingers tapping a persistent quick rhythm on hard wood
  2. Tension winding up the limbs of the stiff sitters
  3. The clenching of teeth in dry mouths
  4. Sweaty palms gripping the edges of worn cloth
  5. Shallow breath grazing the chest and being set free far too soon
  6. Bouncing legs wanting to run, readying to face the risk
