Plumes–Jacob Rayner

I don’t just miss the deep

breathing I miss dragging tar to air,


making space                visible

                          what about the heightened

                  focus? The way my blood coagulates?

         To feel gray, I burn. I want to be


selfish, leave this

seven minutes at a time.
