Human Guinea Pig

Age 37
She was in good health
Height 12000
Cabin pressurized like the camp
Minutes 4
Sweat and shaken head
Minutes 5
Cramps unlike menstrual cramps
Minutes 6-10
Accelerated breathing and loss of consciousness
Minutes 10-30
Three breaths a minute

And then……….
It stopped.
Skin cyanotic
Foam around lips

The night had the tenderness to remain still.
