OUT OF BREATH
(1/24/19)


post
pushups

gasping
for air

feeling
more alive
than I have
all day

such joy
from doing
nothing
significant

nothing
noteworthy

(except
for here
of course)

yet
doing more
to express

more
to enjoy
existence

than dozens
of my other
daily activities

sucking
atmosphere
with a smile

trying
to imagine
some future
time

health
declined

when gasping
for air
will mean
something
entirely
different
