Freezing rain splashed on my skin.
The creepy feeling of a fish’s fin.
The earth rumbles underneath my feet.
Will there come a day when I will be free?
Soothing coos from a mama bird
Fill my mind with all that I have heard
To keep me sane in this world gone to hell,
To salve my wounds and make me well.
Bananas fruit pumpkin cookie valve out
Open lunge pea leaf cringe calliope hum
Pond lip drug fish reel cloudy rain mud
Dirty jeans rocks tear smell populate in
Youth babies crying sing purr frisky old
Liver blood dead eyes functionally inept
Heart struggling lungs full of cancer
Pain suffering sleepless nights boredom
Loneliness dementia depleted oxygen
Brain burnt out blood not reaching gone
