A Dripping Faucet Tap


There is this love
Like an empty house
With a dripping faucet tap
There is this love
That’s like a henhouse
Worn around you like burlap
So coarse is its mixing taps
Even air runs hot and cold
Worlds apart is this love
That never fills, hope!
A cracked hand basin…
Never mind your heart and soul.

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
