Breathe Again



keeping a day ahead when
space occupied by those
preceding still reeks of
waste is deemed vagrancy 


and planning non-events
because your life depends on
it does not explain why no
demand exists in any case


living in expectancy of a
life-changing phone-call
doesn’t bring order to the
chaos surrounding you, so


unleash suspense, be an
angel freed of tyranny
leave the mess, hide the
phone, breathe again
