another kind of sanctuary

the evening spins
i become closely acquainted with my ribs
they squeeze snugly against my lungs
reminding me they are there
I give them a good rub to show them I care
then go ahead and rub my head too
i even put it on the desk
to let it know I am giving it my full attention

my ears ring me
and blinding white puts me in the spot light
my eyes gush to see me
I’m quite popular at the moment
my whole body wants my attention

I give myself over to this consuming embrace
thank god. i say.
thank god…
and put my finger to my lips
