What do we do in these weighty moments, when the atmosphere sucks all vapor from the room?  Shriveled lips, we blink our eyes and crack our joints for relief.  However, the heaviness crawls into our stomachs and sits there, curling its slinky body against our diaphragms.  The caffeine buzzes through our veins.  Wondering, we gaze at thick paint, and maybe we will float after all.
