13 October - a little birthday 'I' piece

I am known mainly
by my breathing
even among all
the other signals
I steer my time
in a part of the air
the tolerant
collaborative air
is it possible
rather than corrosive
everything drops down
then flies
smaller and smaller
the huge receding sound
so long ago
if you knew me
in, around, then out
and then the signing
of the sound
written, traced
on the wall
my crystal spit
and the breath
to get there
