Self Interest

Evidence questions your significance,
even in that small room
where you touch all the walls at once,
suffocating in your own breath.

Congestion compacts larynx walls
to spring an accordion cough,
trying to prove a point.

But sickness is an introspective threat,
boring to observe
yet infections and addictive.

Self interest is a comfortable way to die,

the world stays small.
