Not really self-destructive

I’m holding my hand
over my nose and mouth
and I can’t breathe

I don’t have to hold my mouth
I just am
I can let go at any time

It’s not self-destructive
because I’m still in charge here
still in control

I’m just playing with my mouth and nose —
they’re always doing the same thing
it’s time to mix it up a bunch
with my hand

I try to suck a little air in between the fingers
but I hold on tighter
pinching the mouth and nose
holding it
holding it
