The Air House

The Air House

by Zoë Skoulding

wind snags on the gap
between timbers a tongue
against my teeth

disturbs breath
drawn across languages
as air in a room


settles and circulates
around a body full of oxygen
open to a clear morning

the sound of breath
complicates the room
I brush my lips against

your ear to make
a small patch of
air I can live in
