Breathing Space

My eyes are closed now
waiting for the pennies.
Are yours open yet?
You said you were colour blind
but I said that your eyes were closed.
Are they open yet?

In the end
all I needed was breathing space.
Perhaps it’s all we ever need.
I hope you will speak my name
and the names of the other breathless
My ears are open.

Open your eyes.
