SLOW LEAK
(11/23/15)


we let
so many
little inconsistencies
slide
in our lives

inconveniences
perhaps

but once
we become accustomed
to dealing with them
on a regular
basis

they seem
simply
a part
of the schedule

we cease
to acknowledge
them
as abnormalities

but
when airing up
a tire
at 2am
on a frigid
November morning
suddenly seems
insane

we wonder
at the madness
in the rest
of our lives
