New Poem by Jeremy Limn: Hydrocortisone

Blue grassy hues
and my hospital
window is less than
serene and the vapours
in the air are like a gangrenous
flower tiled in a immaculate
here I breathe before
the diction of empathy and
I euthanise my only hope
of seeing another day
and the rain slumbers
tonight in my toes and
my neck is crucified
by a hydrocortisone show at 3AM
and I'm here
waiting for another breath
another fable to
keep me up at night
rescued by nonsense
rescued by
red sparrows that crawl
into my eyelids
I wake up again idled
swallowing down some apple juice
and all the flowers are veiled
in the garden below
the hospital
the vines are also as lost
as me, I wake up again
and this rhythm
holds me down
in this hue of
a stolen fallible
dream of how I met
God through the frayed
air of myself
