On the Nature of Air

We breathe
the same air
cologne & sweat
rippling-round
til fear seeps in
adrenaline
blood & death
horror
despair
in the end
we breathe sweet air

*Monday note: I've edited this and like this version much better!
 

Kerry called for short poems on the subject of Death and Night. This is also responsive to Izy’s prompt to write from a recently received text message (my first line here).
