a  momentary  holding  together
of bodies.    a resting  upon  wet
surfaces.    fingertips     budding
with     moisture.      dank    bush
floors,        foliage,       fermented
foods.     membranes expanding,
seeds  germinating  as  they  hit
the  air.  excessive  gardens,
fish eggs laid in oceans. droplets
hanging     suspended.       the
incipient vitality all around.
