Swallowed

They said he was a writer
That his soul
Searched words
Like a miner
Does copper
Like a whale does krill

For his survival

They said his words
Stung sweetly
Waiting to kill
Needy and dry reaching
For yet another pill

For me though
His words
Lashed my swallowing soul
Scoured me deep wet
Garnet red

Then
Blood letting me there
They bring me up
Groping and gulping for life’s sweet clean

Abundant fresh air

Swallowed
