312

Unleashed fragments of dust and of dander
that burn through eyes, noses, chests and drawers,
like tornadoes of fear, clouds of cancer
in sideways assaults, in pairs and in fours:
To breathe is to scream across a broad void
while jumping into chasms of black tar;
each breath is a pause, and life has just toyed
with its dusty old knife, leaving a scar:
There is fire inside, and water too,
to spit churns them both and burns through the lungs;
one can glimpse, perhaps, what he ought to do,
but the ladder to action's missing rungs:
There are gasps of sadness, gasps of fury,
and longings for thoughts that once did flurry.
