i felt wholly tangible.
capable of filling this space around me.
i could feel the presence of myself.
almost like i was connected to the air that surrounded me
and i could feel it pushing away, while i moved closer to it.
around it. through it.
perhaps it had to do with the temperature outside -
the way it had dropped.
a cool summer night
that almost blended imperceptibly with my core temperature.
like the water content within me
had reached the perfect simmer
in the summer air.
