The sudden intake of air

cleanses me.


I don’t know what it is like

to fall through a cloud,

but I imagine it is like meeting



My lungs have been full

of nothing since I was a child;

thanks dad for smoking

all the damn cigars you pleased.


And my legs did not work so

well so it took me way too long

to finally get away.
