Phthisis

Phithisis

In the blood – it’s going along in – the blood it is going

Your lungs are a breathing net of coral – a fibrous salmon flange
swaying in the tubercular swamp

The thing is – all of this will melt down – chocolate on the stove
it will pile and melt down – your fibrous roots will disintegrate

Root of clouds – the chest seed planting root – of clouds

You control the air like you control infinity – by drawing circles
around it in continuum – in ball point pen – in sharpie
The more permanent the better
