What is the sound of water
penetrating the crack in the ceiling?
tap tap tapping into my brain
Chinese water torture disturbing my slumber
eroding my walls rotting their foundation
un-mended the opening expands
a growing obsession an incessant knocking
a flash flood threatening to undermine the ramparts
cht plop tok drip
What is the sound of love
penetrating my soul?
