PLUMBING PROBLEMS
(9/3/18)

wedged
beneath
the kitchen
sink

in search
of a clog
seemingly resistant
to drain
cleaner

wet

dirty

I can
hardly
move

but
something
within me
begins
to move

my plugged
pipes
much more
susceptible
to bowel
cleaner

I quicky
unwedge
myself

rush
to the
restroom

barely
in time

at least
something
is flowing
today

I consider
my constipated
self
fortunate

as I also
consider
preparing dinner
beside
the bathroom
sink
