Breathe

I have the bends
     from being so long
beneath the surface
     of everything
and trying to come up
     too fast

I've forgotten

     how to breathe
after being so long
     at the back of the pack
always a day late
     and a rent check short

I don't remember

     what oxygen tastes like
but I'm sure it must be
    sweet
