Caught
Without air
Still
As death on muggy air
Trapped
With nothing at all

You can do
For safety is a state of mind

And there is nothing
But air

To catch you.

I have asked others what they thought it meant. Some said the time just before you drown. One said a deflated balloon. What was your first impression?
