This could be a poem, or an essay, or maybe just stream-of-consciousness psychobabble, but most importantly it is words that have been collected in order to communicate a particular message. Yet, don’t focus so much on the words, but focus more on my body language in the telling of them.
Weather or Not
We collect in pockets of binary energy
Grouped like spots on a cow.
Energy dictated by weather

Summer sets a synergistic stage of situations summoned by the sun.
Simultaneously: Melancholy Maine rain
Burning Texas rage.
