Bubbles beneath my skin
Inflate like balloons

My body beneath, covered
In helium, rising

A soft bed floating
Above the stars

Beneath my rib cage
Rising up into my throat

Acid swirls beneath my flaming eyes
Leafy spirals in lavender water

My head, a million miles
From its body below

And the helium leaves my mouth
And rises above the mirror

And in the bathroom the gas floats
Transparent, inodorous, silent

It exists above me unseen
And hovers with me wherever I go.
