Simple

So simple a word
For this empty
And full
At once
Where breathing is so easy a thing
That catches like a trapped animal In your chest.

So simple a word
For this hungry
Satiation
Where living is so hard a thing
That draws forward like a beast
With wings.

So simple a word for
For such a thing
Complex.
