    TEXT:

    Eustachian Tube in Staccato


    The right of admission
    put into a trance
    eulogy of me the eunuch
    augmenting the auburn
    breadth of hair
    which severs our bridge
    yes auburn means
    reddish-brown
    so burn me and redeploy
    my reduced circumstances
    to a brand new reductio
    ad absurdum
    or ablution at retention
    like a deluge deluxe
    one long
    extended exhale
    of force applied
    at one point
    transmitted to another
    in the use
    of incompressible
    fluids as one master
    cylinder can drive more
    than one slave
    cylinder when desired
    if you have read
    How a Block & Tackle
    Works or How Gears
    Work then you know
    of trading forces
    for distance
    so much depends
    on clicking the red
    arrow to see
    the animation
    a spool from a spool
    of thread:
    you want to
    use as much
    air as you
    are able
    improper coupling
    of asylees refugees aliens
    granted conditional entry
    victims of a severe
    form of trafficking
    you ineligible:
    lie, sit or stand,
    bend
    your knees
    very slightly or prone
    follow your breathing
    while trying your best
    not to influence it: just
    let it
    be what
    it is
    a complete
    breast
    1 inhale & 1
    exhale plus any pause
    at the end of the exile
    some may
    not have paws
    resist breathing
    even when
    discomfort arrives:
    do not
    do it
    so long
    that you pass
    out time
    it in seconds the ribs
    flaring outwards
    the issue and redemption
    of securities barometer
    of the economy
    I the sole shareholder
    of this profitable
    enterprise crash
    recession
    crisis index
    solvent solute
    across the membrane you
    of the House of Turgor
    desalinate my hobbies affected
    by breathing gasping
    breach and heave
    labored jerky erratic
    and irregular and
    tentative and hesitant
    ! mouthrill of snout
    hyperventilating over breathing
    easily audible
    I sigh you yawn
    often often
    catch myself
    not breathing I
    snore suddenly
    wake up
    not breathing I
    am frequently concerned
    about my breathing I
    am none of the above
    exchange of gases
    among us
    four-legged
    animals the system
    supplies flood
    to the chest cavity
    so may the 3 mewing
    muses
    inspire & transpire
    for me as my misuse
    oh Pharynx oh Larynx oh Trachea
    wont he the holder
    of my voicebox
    through glottis & alveoli
    lead me rollercoasterly
    to my very own
    shaken baby syndrome? Show less
