    Remember to breath, buddy.
    This will only hurt if you resist or
    look at me funny. I’m a specialist–
    the Dr is in. Only got a nickle
    or no money? Lucy makes you pay
    in blood—my bedside manner
    is a flood wave crashing in to
    blood banks and I’m O positive
    when I’m done God will give thanks.
    No more Zoloft!
    A Banner year off, and I’m loving it!
    My blood thick with Prozac, Ritalin,
    Ativan and tiger’s piss. So maybe I
    act like Hannibal
    with a stomach growl as I relish
    each . and . every . vowel
    from your quivering jowls as
    you insist you never ever touch
    little kids…but, breathe and relax,
    Buddy. You wont be touching
    much at all, after tomorrow.

    remember to breathe;
    otherwise, expect rain.

    Lived my life quite episodically

    Trauma appearing spasmodically

    Dealing with stress methodically

    Receiving assistance periodically

    Remember to breathe…

    Sheltering my siblings from apparent danger

    From the man who morphed from dad to stranger

    Mom’s life and safety he’d constantly endanger

    Made my grandfather the exit arranger

    Remember to breathe…

    Children are a blessing or so I was told

    17 going on 18 I felt pretty bold

    Because a little boy did my body hold

    For 9 long months, nobody I told

    Remember to breathe…

    Toddler #2 was quite the explorer

    Burned himself badly, oh what a horror

    First, second and third degree terror

    Turned me into a shame and guilt wearer

    Remember to breathe…

    Life can be quite the affair

    One for which you can not prepare

    But thrill seekers beware

    Of possible despair

    If you don’t

    Remember to breathe.

      Excellent – I’m reading this using the sketchy, free wifi at the Nassau airport. I’ll be adding this submission to the “Best Of” section when I am plugged back in.

      Thank you for sharing

    remember to breathe.
    and then remember your ghosts.
    you’ll understand the pain
    and the air are just the same.
