Breath Work audio
Gently inhale & exhale
Right lung, left lung, blink 
Hold on to your seat real tight, hold your breath, keep your eyes in your head, and go on 
Meditate on the colour that is flesh void of oxygen, also the
discoloured fruit / fingered out of misted windows / into which I breathed 
for years i stood / in the semeny ginko staring at my hands believing / in afterlives thinking one day I’d wake into / a new kind of body like a fish suddenly / breathing air through its eyes [4
