and drown dry
in murky places
flooded by drought.
trapped in curdled chaos,
where dreams sink dumb-founded.
until the Peacekeeper
is breathed in,
invited into capillaries,
sweet oxygenated blood
Exhale slow, lest breath gets lost,
Breathe in deep when, laced with frost,
Shallow gasps burn timid lungs,
Melt the tips from dripping tongues.
