Apnea - Poem by douglas lewis

I count to ten.
Please breathe.
Any sound would be so sweet.
French horns pinched
And starved for air
Would be music to my ears.
Please breathe.
A jolt and gasp,
A tunnel bored,
No pantomime to bear.
Please breathe.

    (continued) ... then i was tested again and told i still had 'sleep apnea' but didn't need to use the machine, with hose and mask, while i slept. BUT my 'new' wife decided i still should, so i did........until SHE decided i should stop. i'm always AMAZED at how smart she is! ! ! HA HA! maybe she just likes to see if i do her bidding.
    interesting! bri ;)
