Additional vocabulary could mean
The fog spilled in
And you were cleaned by it or
The fog rolled in and
Created a halo of blur all around your head
Additional descriptions could mean
You were lost, but — you didn’t feel it

Your own wholly clouded sky
along with it
                And tools of measurement
                          for the task ahead
