Let The Dust Settle

Rating: 5.0

Suddenly all is quiet.
Not a whisper, not a sound.
That wind just breezes in,
Blowing debris on the ground.


Sunlight on floating dust,
I breathe in the dirty air.
A gentle cough clears my throat,
But still it's everywhere.

(cont.) It could be like mine, and mine's a CURSE! I guess I should have worn my respirator mask. In the asbestos mine I almost, but not quite, did ask... What might be the hazards of not wearing this darn thing? So now i COUGH & COUGH, and, when needed, they bring... my pain shot, emesis basin, bedpan, and tube feeding meal, and at times to x-ray room, in my bed, down the hall they wheel... me. ; (
