Kirk Miles



From the artist: "The title of the poem “Hypoxia” is the medical term for a body or a region of the body  deprived of oxygen. This poem relives the life of a healthcare worker who has arrived home exhausted and overwhelmed by his emotions. For some inexplicable reason he has managed to turn on the TV to a Vietnam War movie with a cliché death scene. These are some of his random thoughts."
