Half Open Eyes
Vanishing as quickly as it came into my lungs.
Dust whispered and then it blew away.
Inhaling a beast deep into my throat.
Exhaling a philosopher from my soul.
It’s hollow air thus my thirst is insatiable.
Breathe in and swallow shallow dirt.
Low burns extinguished with the breeze.
Respiring in my crypt with only the atmosphere in sight.
