Lines West, Oct. 13, 2017

holding love at bay

an ocean of love surges

as I hold my finger in the dike

afraid of being inundated, overwhelmed

i am no match for such a force

with the other hand, i place a call

to the army corp of engineers

i can’t do this alone,

it will take all of us to hold back the tide

the whole village comes running,

only a few crazies yelling

“no, let it break

let it break wide open!”
