asphyxiation is a problem that,
i never knew
an oxygen deficiency
how does one forget to breathe?
rudimentary actions instilled from birth
my lungs are pressed by petty concerns
what if i inhale too little
or exhale too much
it’s just in out in out in out
It is an axiom that without proper ventilation
there is but one option:
We’re trained all our lives to balance equations with the idea that both sides will even out, but life doesn’t work that way. Some undeserving person will end up with more than someone who works hard, and that is the way of the world. Our scars, visible and invisible, remind us that the past is real.
