Eucalyptus

I lay naked on the steps of a cave

While steam rolls gently

mist eucalyptus infused

Tasting imagined leaves

That rest on my tongue

I inhale the droplets

each pore of skin opens

Collecting drops in the bends of my body

Purging the toxins from within

I run my fingers across my arms

Nails digging red marks

I draw a picture of the heat smothering me
