Breathe

Breathe

By Casey Douglass


Inhale,
draw in feelings of peace, happiness and relaxation.

Exhale,
let all the stress, negativity and illness within flow outwards.

Inhale, Again take in the feeli-

You know what? Fuck it.

Inhale,
drink in the pollution, the sadness and death. Suck it all in until your chest strains and stomach trembles.

Exhale,
push out any feelings of hope, comfort and joy. Eject it all until your cheeks are hollow and your lips tingle.

Repeat.

Let’s get this fucker over with.
