blocked nose

why do these steel wheels not break beneath us all?

set on fire by the cumulative heat of 900 degrees

i have lungs of glass – with such fixed capacity and inelasticity

i sip air carefully to avoid the shattering caCOUGHony of destruction

damn this too comptetnet nose for wanting life so much

that it forces the scent of kneecap sweat

into my already confined mind

but at least this engulfing ache is empathetic

to all the godless jails

filled with innocent convicts
