Snail Trails

common_snail 

if rain didn’t do it
and you agreed it had
the facility then disparate
views of tedium confused
me; it is as if to say atmosphere
constrained within a tent
defines what is and what
is not deemed wet

– though assuredly these
are loose ascriptions, 95%
humidity is none-the-less
wall-to-wall damp and
snail trails spread
perfidiously
