Around You

Peripheral movements.

A subtle breeze.

Voices echoing.

A scent approaching.

Something is

 

 

behind, beside, above, below

 

all around

 

that gentle caress

of oxygen.

You wouldn't notice unless

it was sucked out with

a vacuum,

suffocating.

 

Air-conditioned comfort

or sticky wet heat.

 

The dry air absorbing

the moisture from your

body.
