Today's poem is by Corey Mesler
How it doesn't carry you around.
How remarkably durable it is,
carrying you around.
How it doesn't stay.
How it is here forever.
How I adore it, with its curves and
declivities, its shallow
places, its grace, its heat and humidity.
How I turn for it in the dark,
and it is gone.
How it is gone. How it is here forever.
