What a profound suffocation,
So short the abbreviation of breath.
How deep the sensation,
restricting the phantom's inhalation,
coughing up and spitting out the heart of the figure.
What a rib crushing feature
of nights blue-black shadow

How the moon rests unharmed in its smokey cloud den,
How it looks to the wind to expand its ribs
And the wind does,
