Slurping gravity.

When I walk, I do not even step on the ground fully and firmly, with all my little weight on this giant rock rolling in space. It is as though I’m slurping gravity, not devouring it. I walk as though I never properly learned to walk. And when I rest my body on the bed, I levitate like a cloud.

Is this tenderness on my part for the earth, or is this my anxiety dripping as I walk?
