René and Georgette Magritte with their dog after the war // An assertion of subconscious desire / held between thoughts // I’ve been thinking about the letter / since I found it / and keep wondering / what I was thinking // I suppose I’d finally got my breath back / so I didn’t recognize the lifeline // It wouldn’t be the first time // Now I’ve got all the breath I can handle / just in time to hold it for a while // Lifelines are slack for the duration // René and Georgette Magritte with their dog after the war / are an artefact left over / from long before I had trouble breathing // An assertion of subconscious desire / arguing with itself //
