Proactive Suffocation

Proactive Suffocation

April 21/13

Suffocation comes easily when breathing forgotten.

Thick air like concrete pours into tired airways,

leaving behind dried remains.

Leaving behind solidified passages.

Leaving behind hardened memories, sharp to the touch.

They are calm like the ocean.

They are cold as ice.

They cut and scratch and wreak havoc on paradigms that would not otherwise shift and never dissipate.

But lungs that exist only to breathe do not long forget about muscle and blood.  About other organs not stifled by concrete.  About hands and feet that refuse to be still.

And a mind that is learning stillness demands reciprocity from all recipients of it’s new found power.
