November 28, 2011: A deep breath. CWE 57

A deep breath brings me together.  My shoulders pull up my elbows, and the air goes down my throat in a cool burn.  I don’t trip over breaths.  My forearms don’t sweat.  My eyebrows don’t itch, and my temples don’t throb.  My body doesn’t tremble like a windchime, a thousand pieces clattering.  The rubber bands pulling at my legs release, and I go like jelly for a minute.
