27/30:UPON WATCHING A TRUMBONE PLAYER GO BREATHLESS
by Zachary Caballero
This is a sentence with a sense of urgency
let us celebrate the death of breath
like your lung’s favorite emergency
No matter the worry, hurry fam
never lose the fast food for thought.
Quick lips, decide joy
without a jury.
the last gasp is how the breath crashes
into a crest of ash
nothing good is good
until we learn it cannot last.
