The Sound of Their Breathing

 

I watch the world inhale, exhale

each fragile breath so slight;

simple to asphyxiate, faces turning pale

I watch the world inhale, exhale

dreaming how to make them quail,

to quiver in fear, to scurry in flight

I watch the world inhale, exhale

each fragile breath so slight
