Iron lung

Its a wonder

how the heart learns to be okay with everything

all the things that so disgusted you as a child, are fine now really

what’s more you are a part of it now,

you’ve absorbed it all, year on year

into that skin of yours

it seeps at night

and simmers down in the day, so you dont know really

until you do.





some situation

opens up a portal

to this child

who stands against all that once disgusted us,

all that we thought was evil

let him come,

I will wait

until then

let me inhale smoke

with my iron lung.
