It Only Takes So Much Catasrophe

January 18, 2011

It trickles and leaks down the steps in to cracks
in the stairway to fill up the basement
and eat the foundation
and drown all the life out of
everything, everything
we’ve kept around for so long
and as long as
the bilge pumps are broken,
and the kinder words spoken,
the stuff will keep dripping
and grips will start slipping and
soon enough everyone’s
dead
