Poem: DNA

Here’s an original poem I wrote today in a bid to write a five-line poem every day as a form of catharsis and an extension of my therapy to better manage my depression.


sequence my DNA and watch as it, too
curls around your brain like a parasitic
python and feel as your breath, too,
diminishes and stars of a different kind
appear before your fading eyes.
