Title


Questions are
necessary maladies
the kind of
which oxygen is.
And like oxygen,
these questions
are selfish, give some
take plenty.
They stay in your lungs
choking you—
your whole breath apparatus
till you acquiesce
bend over to
their yearnings.
Give in
and then you’ll live
or you mightn’t
for are they
(questions)
not like oxygen?
Selfish,
thoughtless oxygen
