Creeps up the esophagus,
Tickles the ear canal,
Heightens awareness.
A stray leaf
Blowing across the street
Suddenly seems significant.
Clouds forming overhead build
More than anticipation.
Now, there is expectation –
Hope, that will disappoint if
All the spine-tingling
Sensations amount to
Anything less than
Catastrophe.
