Social Isolation: Day 74

Social Isolation: Day 74
 
Ex-
(I won’t spell it out).
 
If life-spirit breathes
its breath into your mouth
and you respire,
aspire, are inspired
to breathe again
and breathe in again
what trees breathe out
and they, the trees, breathe you
and you breathe again,
alone in your room
or out to the corner store,
then whoever conspires
with their own rank impulse
to take that breath away
is lost to himself/herself
and to the fact that you,
a man (a woman, a child)
were given that breath at birth
(spell it)
and have a right to breathe.
