ionic compounding

My tank
is rather small right now -
there’s so much salt
that has been thrown
into my water.

I try hard
not to breathe it,
but the trouble is
I cannot separate
the sustaining
from the toxic.

So I sputter
with little gulps -
these hard won inhales
that fill my lungs
with harsh cement.

Sweet oxygen
where are you?
I know you’re in here
as evident
by this
accounting.
