Obnoxious Air

He leaved the brithing air

With every sound he came closer

closer to the core until

he was there no more

 

He leaved the brithing air

like it was muscle attached to bone

hacking cough of the gates of hell

welcomed every breath

 

He leaved the brithing air

silence was his friend

and melody his enemy

sasquatch to that core

 

He leaved the brithing air

not a living breath of doubt

not a faithless hiker

not a road sweeper

 

He leaved the brithing air

not now expectant

not here and there

but present in my brow

 

He leaved the brithing air

waiting for a miracle

unaware he was one

aware just the same

 

He leaved the brithing air

when it was all around

He leaved the brithing air

and hit out at his enemy

 

He leaved the brithing air

obnoxious to the core

He leaved the brithing air

’til he was no more
