Daily missive for Wednesday the 1st of May.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 1st of May.

Fill me up
One drop at a time
Empty me
Drain me out
Use the container
For something more useful
Than navel gazing
There are so many
Different ways to tie
A simple knot
Will there ever be
A final analysis
Who will conduct it
Will they use a pipet
To measure
The space we leave behind
And what will happen
To the results
When everything
We accumulate
Has fallen
Into the sun
Weighed in the balance
Against something good
We come up short
A vessel, emptied
Of all it might contain
One drop at a time
We drain away
What happens
To the lifeblood
Once it has gone
Can it ever be refilled
When what we have become
Is less than
The sum
Of all we want to be
