Air

February 19, 2013

Cool as
balmy in Summer,

frozen in Winter

with needles

like diamonds

of asbestos.


Smelling of kitty litter

to put it politely.

Indoor heated. Fragrant.

Hibiscus scented.


For Sale; more expensive when surrounded by a

five bed townhouse,

than a two bed end terrace.


Easily explained by a weather diagram.

Colder at one end of the kitchen

than the other.


Easy to hold
in one or two
palms of your
hands.


See through


silky, precious, miraculous,

necessary,


a matter of concern

in a hermetically sealed hostage situation.


Running out of my lungs

when I try to take my
unfamiliar body for a run.

The same in the lungs of my lover

as in the ordinary capillaries

of my worst enemy.

All there is between us.
