can breathe                             in this

pick my breath from the empty,
carryit in your lungs, like it's your own

clear space in my own lungs, let you curl
hear my heart beat above your head
feel my breath quicken
and slow

my curved spine will cradle you,
hold my knees against my chest so you are 
warm, lift my diaphragm so as not
to crowd
you out

I have room, for you
here, I have
