notes on asthma

miss my medicine
find I
miss my breath
missing my
breath has
me waking
up in
the night’s
very middle
to
which I
retrieve a
red
pen
in anger
and
mark the
void
my own

while
many
others are
sleeping
I present
to you
my icy
wheeze
and
low temperature
cough

today
I forgot
to take
my meds
(missed)

this morning
these
lungs are
reminding me

asthma,
dear scourge
of my being
please…
back-the-fuck-up-a-bit
why don’t you?
