escape

words escape
as my breath
falls short

lean in

hear faint
whispers

soft spoken

slowly cho-
king
paralysis

words fall

short

two
halves
not
quite
mee

ting

as my
breath
escapes

your smoky
mutterings
snake their
way in

fingers

invading

what little capa

city is left

(even ursula
wasn’t so
intrusive)

words

fall sh
ort
as my
breath
es
capes

me
