air…

sometimes…

I find myself

taking a quick, deep breath

for no reason

seemingly,

except that perhaps

in that moment

the body

has some recognition of

stale air

shallow breath

languishing lungs,

the body

shakes awake

reaches up

asks for more-

and I inhale,

gasping

quick and deep

like dipping my head

under the water

after too long

in the sun.
