sometimes a guy just needs a beer ::
i am the air

i wasn’t supposed
to be the air
but the flood

NO
i should have said
THIS IS THE FLOW
i should have said
I’LL TAKE YOU MY WAY
i should have said

but i am the air

& i know
there’s water
on your breath

that’s dangerous
it makes hurricanes

that’s the air
that’s me
hurricanes

i can hurt
where hurt
shouldn’t happen

beer & poetry
white the train
i am the air
not ten
such fur to stroke
no
cliché
i am hit
it’s not an alien axe
i’ve seen denied
if i pounce these
so
uses powerful language tail up
