Air

Air

i inhale silence
for it is the only kind of air
my lungs are familiar with
and i exhale indifference
for it is the only way
silence is expelled
out of my system
out of my body
then i hush myself
to sleep at night
with the hope
that tomorrow
a new kind of air
would breathe freely
thru my lungs
