Meta What For

not exactly a wet blanket, but certainly damp
heavier than it should be

dragging a bit, fraying
snagging on random brambles

collecting dust and dirt and other
disgusting blanket muck

old and torn enough to let in the breeze
holey but still somehow burdening

weighted at the edges
weighted at the shoulders

tangled about every appendage and digit
limiting, inhibiting, insert another synonym

yet somehow keeping me warm
or maybe the warm is keeping me
