Small Stone #29

Small Stone #29:

In anticipation, I pause and focus inward.  Gathering determination and saliva, I force myself to attempt swallowing.  The lump of molten knives squeezes through the narrow passageway, otherwise know as my throat.  Glands ache with the effort.  I pause, rather breathless, and rest before the need to swallow presents itself again.
