Benadryl, a poem

the pollen swarm
is passing strewed

the snarling snout
AHHH- AHHCHOOO'd


hold on, hold on
here comes another
biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig breath in
AHHH... AAAHH--
--PAUSE--



it's quiet up here



this frozen millisecond



where velocity is zero



and my eyes are closed



at the apex of this sneeze



I am not rising



I am not falling



and it's so quiet up here



I wish I could stay



--UNPAUSE--
CHOOOOOO
and out you go
impartial spray


toxicly pink pill,
you do nothing to pollen
you do everything to me
so I may find
uncoordinated tolerance between sternutations

what is done when you are here
is lost

what is not done when you are gone
is found
