BreathingMatthew W. Schmeer
The window smeared with dead flies and remnant spiders will not open. I ache for fresh air, But you will not leave– You insist on holding my hand. Your face draws nearer; Your eyes, etched with defiance, Widen when I motion toward the window. You turn to look. You ignore the flies. You do not look back.
