Spider Lungs

There are spider webs in my lungs.

They contract and dilate

Rip and tear

with each grasping attempt to respire

as I choke on lies

deceit

and strawberry aftershave.

    Thanks Peter, life gets in the way, but I’m coming back to it slowly 🙂

    ‘Spider webs’ in the lungs, powerful, Azzuen, I feel the awful sweetness of that aftershave! Good to see you’re writing still, remember your poems from the old site.
