his brow was creased
the light mood had stopped
from one second to the next
i felt a heaviness
and pressure
within him, deep
he didn't know why
he was hot and still
and told me not to worry
i was disobedient
and worried endlessly
for 93 minutes

as i turned and saw something rise up from him
it looked like a dusty peach blush coloured blanket
but ghostly, greyed out and cloud like
like buffeted smoke,yes
it seemed to be being sucked into somewhere high up above us.
this was all over within a split second.

i looked over to him
his whole face altered,
lightness, buoyancy, a place expecting fun
his colour was different, his skin had entirely changed
and he looked at me and smiled.
he was back
