“Am I Allowed to Breathe” a poem by Eric King


Am I allowed to breathe?

Is that a punishable offense

Am I allowed to feel

is that a shot?

Are my thoughts read

like my letters

scanned and stored

to be used against me later

My dreams disected and distorted

Tearing apart the meanings

Digging for something


Does my every firing neuron

Have sinister intentions
