On a Wintery Night, Part Three




I sat smoking one

seeing if

taking some oxygen

away would line up

with my perceptions


it was painful some

and a relief

to make my body suffer

a bit

nearing the feelings

my heart was soaking in


I swallowed some


fire – down my throat – calmly


it burned the side of my tongue


before running down

the minute it will hit

my liver it will make it nuts

striving – trying to process it

and my soul


my heart would not

have the full attention

for once


that’s why I was doing it


how to deviate pain

how to defeat confusion

by confusing my own

physical body

as the pain of the heart

is hard to tame
