On This Occasion

Too preachy?

On This Occasion

On any occasion really,
air is important, so I invite
the morning to rest in my lungs,

to cool and calm my heart’s rebellions,
itchy and caustic,
the bile I’ve yet to taste.

It’s best to pause, allow time
to walk without us, to slap
a stick against a row of pickets

as we, still and quiet, gravely breathe,
admit that this air, all we share,
is thinning and thinning.

  1. Certainly NOT too preachy. You should have added a sign that says “Breathe will you can!” We flew in from Baltimore last night and OML! The pollution was a thick blanket over the Salt Lake valley. Wasn’t off that plane for ten minutes before I was coughing and my eyes were hurting.
