Poem from Colin James : Nourishment Under Urban Sea Levels (from Fevers of the Mind Anthology 2019)

Waters, A Bird'S Eye View, City, River

Nourishment Under Urban Sea Levels

The euphemism, 
"Healthy set of lungs"
    had me gasping for rectitude
    Once my pulse normalized
     I searched for the protagonist
     slightly sidetracked by the bloody compass
     of my magnifying glass
     Any drunk is liable to offer
     his opinion when climbing
     the towers of narcissism
     Up yours, grandeur!
     Selflessness is the most obstinate
      of the modern conveniences.

Bio from 2019:
Colin James has a book of poems, Resisting Probability from Sagging Meniscus Press. He lives in Massachusetts.
