Climbing the hill  

Puffing a little after the burning breakfast toast
I attempt my usual stride but the
slippy chossy track is steep
so I fix my mind on the wind in high branches
and Red Kites scattering skyward
anything other than the deep sharp knife point
of asthma embedded in my
chest this morning
