what is a ‘palpable thrill’?

palpable like touch
(a part of the body)
palpable like something
in the palm, like something
you can hold (maybe)
that wakes you up and
holds you still
and thrill!
like something from
the heart, a murmur
(something’s wrong here)
(something’s not quite right)
a palpable thrill
place your hand just so
(quiet, and connect)
and feel the wave, the little wave
and find the missing piece
to make this whole thing whole
(what a thrill; to patch those empty holes).
