I Inhaled The Whole World

I knuckled my bones, stiff
Bending my toes
Footing, half slippers; perspiring
a silent beat

Cloying an oppressive air
Voice lost its volume, as
An uncanny whisper
Sneaked, by its larger shape

Fear grazed grimly
The strange twilit lofts
Weeding the dank darkness
Cocking my ears

I groped
About my slippers,
Cracking louder bones
Against the resurgent voice

A pungent smell hung
The dark doorway
Rasping its nose, while
I inhaled the whole world, agape!
