ALIVE
(12/2/06)


I awake
with a start
totally aware
breathing in air
of mass quantities
still not enough oxygen
to feed the life in my
ever expanding
lungs

I spring
from my bed
synapses firing
with energetic facility
muscles responding
in kind
I see everything
with more clarity
than could possibly exist
in everyday
reality

clothes
cover me
and I burst from the house
oblivious to the cold
and snow
legs pumping easily
through ice crusted drifts
breath puffing visibly
from this smokestack
of life
I have become

I AM ALIVE TODAY!!!

get the
fuck
out of my way
humans

before
the moment
is gone
