the air outside
is muggy and warm
and so heavy
you pant mist

overcast - it’s like
being in a forest
cool mud overlaid
with carpets of moss

i can feel flaking bark
on the backs of my legs
as i think back to the
time when we sat by the
stream talking

and watching fireflies
in the mist as we swatted
mosquitoes from our skin
