Faucet Drip



   there breathe lies that bruise chap lips,


   band of white wed finger’s voice,


   lover’s eyes remind me I’m,

a second choice.



   paint rust stain ‘low faucet drip,


   plumbers paid for greedy choice,


   I must leak until my death,

a vacant voice.

  1. ugh man…a second choice is hard enough…the imagery in the second bit of the faucet and its relation to you as well…leaking out as a vacant voice…nice and evocative man…

  2. That’s a very powerful poem. The end is both very effective… and terrible: “I must leak until my death”, what a frightening omen… Good writing, I like the symmetry of so/and/but’s.

  3. The lack of length by no means belittles the power of this piece. A sad play on the prompt today…I know all too well what being played like a second fiddle feels like 😦 This one hit!
