Angel’s Breath

angel's breath

Listening
Whirring fridge
A flat
Human laughter in the wind
Slightly off C
Sudden dull thuds
Quickened heartbeat
A flash of white
Searing fear
Sirens scream
Inside the cavity
Of acid green
What is that smell?
Nebulous, acrid
Footsteps pounding
Headspace resounds
Broken B
Chairs dragged
Across cheap tile
Shattered F sharp
Quivering interstice
And then amidst the chaos
Here in my bed
An angel’s breath
Comforts me
