A Stray Cloud

unspeakable me, still
waiting for the silence
to speak up in me,

still, best thing they say
to do is-

not forget to
breathe,

just don’t forget to
remind me
,

and chimney mouth still
breathes its lava, and ulcers
riot all over night’s
sloppy streets,

i jam a smoke ‘tween
my lips to clear
the air a bit,

clear the head n’ drown in tub,
rub ’til raw, bite my lip
and vanish

for as long as
fog permits
.
