Indifferent muscle

Like a mismapped something
or a piece of uncooked oatmeal not finding its way all the way down
This is how you pant
Finding the black hole of semi consciousness 
Watered by very distant tunes
playing right in your earbuds 

Marks the distance you cannot map
or a weighted ball that hovers
This is how you breathe
Wearing the sheath of indifferent muscle 
Creating worlds of breath
playing right in your throat

Plays a repeating tune
of jingling bells and quavering voices 
This is how you listen 
Crying your own thoughts in your own head
Finding pools of lotus 
hemmed by steps to the water
