Overcast layer grey repression
holding heat in, no breeze to blow
out this hole, cavity under cloud
cave of shadows and taxis moving
where, no sun, only darkening air
heavy mist descending, closing out
the mountain, curtain sealing us
from the green, humid bundles
suppress, colorless vapor diastolic
and melancholic, birds barely lift
burdened under systolic stupor.
