St. Blaise (patron of throats & mom's favorite!)

there is a fire

in this windpipe

a smoldering around

these vocal chords

a growl

a wheezing cough

a slender fishbone caught

a breath comes gleaming

out of the darkness

like a birth

with a blue heat

that radiates like a mistake

trying to climb up

and out


  1. Oh yeah, I remember that! The blessing of the throats with the weird curvy candle thing.

  2. Great blog! My friend Becky recommended it to me, and I'll definitely be adding you to my Reader.
