there’s a hole in my bucket

there’s a hole in my particular bucket

that can’t be filled with mud or straw,

though that would be a handy solution;

they are, at least, easy to come by.

a corporeal fix is unsuitable, however;

the break is metaphysical and

a different kind of patch is required

to stop up the leaks and

prevent further damage.

I like writing. Words help me unpack my thoughts so things can start to make sense. Once I have both myself and the universe figured out, I plan to take up macrame. "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing, and learn as you go." E. L. Doctorow
