Fifteen minutes

on a white wall.

 

Silence sucks down – relinquishing the residue of a day – a life – a decade.

 

What you thought you knew: evaporated.

swirling centrifugal force

into the bowels of the sewer system.

 

What’s left

is a frail network

of vulnerable atoms.                         Attached resolution.

Clinging. Clutching.

Begging

not to be converted.

 

Slick skin                               glistens.

 

And then

the unmistakable

drip.

 

Absence of choice.

Concession to gravity.

 

Spread thinly on the epithelial surface,

pores gasp. shriek. inhale. shiver.

 

The roiling surface

spreads thinner now.

 

Sudden exposure.

New.

Crawling with aliveness.
