“<less than thr3" by Jonathan Pettyjohn

Breath in and out.

and like that (it’s here)

[[Pound] And]

Breathe.

(questioning)

[[Pound] And]

Out.

(denouncing)

[[Pound] And breathe.]

[[Pound] And out.]

(question question question question)

[[Pound] Breathe. And out.]

[[Pound] Breathe. And out.]

(denounce denounce denounce denounce)

Pound breathe And out Pound breathe And out Pound breathe And out Pound breathe And out

sweating tensing pausing not to breathe and [[Pound And Pound And Pound And]] out and

Breathe. [[Pound] And]

Out. [[Pound] And]

is it still there

(it is still there)

Breathe. [[Pound] And]

Out. [[Pound] And]

catching clawing fading falling

[[Pound And Pound And Pound And

silently slipping slowly (swiftly) [soundlessly screaming]]]

[[Pound And Pound And Pound And

(floating up and away) breathing once again]]

Breathe. [[Pound.] Out. And.]  Breathe. [[Pound.] Out. And.]

(silence again) inside and outside, are you still there, (no answer) is fine

Breathe.

[[Pound.]

Out.

And.]

Breathe.

[[Pound.]

Out.

And.]

We shouldn’t hide. it shouldn’t be here. Spirits aren’t meant to (live in fear)

Breathe in.

Breathe out.
