Love in the Time of 78.09% Nitrogen, 20.95% Oxygen, 0.93% Argon, 0.04% Carbon Dioxide, Small Amounts of Other Gases, and a Variable Amount of Water Vapor

you are my favorite fresh air
and when you touch my face
i am infused to heights so deadly
from which, were i to plummet,
would surely leave me flattened,
as if by unmanned steam roller,
smile permanently pressed
upon my breeze-kissed face.
and this is why i love you so:
you make every imagined death
picturesque, no matter how grotesque.
