The sunlight filtering through the willow tree leaves a mismatched shadow on my wrist, wobbling in tune to the hums of the sun’s sultry song. I pull my arm into the sky, as if controlled by some external force, and watch the air above me conglomerate into a messy farrago of muddy fog left over from the morning dew and perfumed sweat, smelling like rotten oranges or putrid pomegranates. The scents interlock and tango over sky ownership: a miasma of dawn musk.
