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 start to make sense. I suppose that once I figure out life, the universe, and everything (my thanks to Douglas Adams), I'll have nothing left to say. "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing, and learn as you go." E. L. Doctorow
