with (headache) air in mind

breathing headache air
at
three ay-em

it crept in
underneath
the hallway door

and squeezed around
the rubber seal
that keeps my window
closed

there is no way
to sleep
through this
when the particles are up
and dancing

I try to read
the midnight news

already
I am out
of date

I find that I can’t help
but feel
the world has moved
while I
was trying
so hard
to remain asleep

who remembers flame
today

it was
already yesterday
when we were burned

who can see the past
through the grey
of air
that smoulders
while it covers up the worst
of sights
the fire black
of bush

of everything

then seeps indoors
as headache air
underneath each doorway

around the seals
of windows
then remain
inside my mind
