Damp

It rained today;

not cats or dogs

nor sweet little

drips and drops

but it was enough

to wet my clothes,

make heavy feel heavier,

and the earth feel closer

as it rose up toward me;

drenched my fingertips

and I felt the weight

of gravity.

The heaviness

which keeps the world turning

and my heart beating.
