If I Breathe…


How do I begin to breathe?
This messy flow of life within me.

Humanity takes and remakes
the stale mannequins, sitting in silence

.and we watch
Why should I begin to breathe?
The air is congested and sick.

What is in a breath?
it is our poverty.

Our release into the wild
it is the consistency of our race

Where will I begin?

In the turning leaves
cascading down to the Earth.
meeting ends

When can breath begin again?
