COPD

Poesy plus Polemics

breathless-rachel-nelson “Breathless” by Rachel Nelson

dead lungs

black bladders

hang stiffly

from sins in a

crumbling cage

every breath

drawn at rest

nonetheless

a pained labor

for tissues

time turned

into lifeless

sere parchment

the least-made

exertions

trip desperate

cascades of

deep gasping

a breathlessness

drowning in

indifferent air

inescapable

penance for

nonchalant folly

offending the

most precious

gift of a life

penance now

come to due

during this

the last phase

of my moon
