astronaut

by lexi

for

the educational world awaits, spilling knowledge into my throat

i am too busy choking to indulge in something as trivial

as my own hobbies and pursuits

my throat is sunken with fluids

that burn my tongue and gums numb

and if i speak my lungs collapse and crash onto each other

like ticking time bombs

my brain has access to my ankles and legs

to describe them as ankle weights is not accurate they are not weighted, they are weak

they are immobile

and, despite my lack of interest in my health

i cannot help but notice i continue to gain rather than lose pounds

a side defect a side effect

is ruining the physical portion of me

that i have left.

for

to be idle is to die
