MINIMUM DAILY REQUIREMENT
(6/19/12)


breathe

breathe
my friend

inhale
relax
and enjoy
this good
clean
air

respiration
is your only
immediate
concern

oh
hunger
and thirst
will eventually
emerge

those
events
will be addressed
in time

everything
else
is a tainted
collection
of human smeared
contrivance

we have
created
this myriad
of daily miscellany
from a need
to control

to be
controlled

breathe
my friend

until
the final
exhalation

your lungs
will claim
your existence
