permeated a theater

as damaged women

and the men they dragged

to whatever’s next….


the air was thick with it..


choking on their confusion

 gagging on their

that was crystal clear

was crisp and heavy

with the night’s fog

i was grateful

to finally

get out the door

so i could exhale

their needy
