just a tear away

a warm monsoon in the shower
and the artificial sixty watts
up in the ceiling
running in circles around the confused adult mind
while ten childish toes just giggle and bathe
in the lively vortex of the insufficient drain hole

and the drops patter

do not feel bad
must not feel sad
do not wish to wake the flood
do not feel bad
do not feel mad
do must stop the rising of the flood

a rain of fright in the deep dive
over the edge of the bed
with the devils
running in circles around the confused adult mind
while ten childish toes just snore and snuffle
under the light eiderdown of insufficient tarpaulin

and the drops patter

do not feel bad
must not feel sad
do not wish to wake the flood
do not feel bad
must not feel mad
do must stop the rising of the flood

This poem is an example from yet unpublished volume
currently identified as "I wish it was Texas"
by Yumatzuga (2005-2020).
