    “Where do allergies go when it’s after the show
    and they want to find something to eat?”
    — Paul Simon, “Allergies”

    allergies

    as best I understand
    the reason my eyes
    are red and puffy
    and my nose stuffy
    is my body is trying
    to protect me from
    bad things in the air
    a knee-jerk response
    shutting down my
    air ways and blurring
    my vision as a way
    of keeping me safe
    and I wonder how
    else in my life I am
    rushing to judgment
    slamming my heart
    shut and leaving me
    unable to breathe
    deep the breath of God

    Peace,
    Milton
