Swamp


Inside

water drips 

out of leaky pipes

onto the kitchen floor ,

outside

broken sprinklers

overflow onto sidewalks,

sometimes 

my heart leaks a little

too

i suppose

we will have to 

eat sandwiches on top of 

past due bills

 which vine

around our shins

oblivious 

to the fact 

that 

my daughter and i are looking 

 for a trellis

too
