Delivered












Delivered

Time bloats like water

Something inside.

Turning with days

Awakened by moon

The unavoidable tide.

Small spongy cork

Swelling to block

the only escape.

Plugging the hole

Against pounding wave.

The groaning vessel,

Screaming surf and

Bursting dam

Here I am.

You write incredible prose, and you are a poet, too. Really loved "Delivered".

I've always had a hard time with poetry but I understand "Delivered". Your choice of words and imagery are accessible, yet profound.
