Breath of Exit (Released to Static Sea)

all he’s got.

ever wonder if the dying breath
merely signals escape
from life?

no more floods where there’s no lungs to outrun
and toes have grown so done with
ladder’s greased pole rungs,

no more thinning of neglected teeth,
phantom limbs or clinging stain
settlin’ in for a dim night’s
grief

just release.
