Faucet

Lately writing had been on or off
Like a faucet that doesn't know how to just drip

I wish it were a constant flow
Words one over another over another
But instead

It is either words
Spilling
Overflowing

Slipping down the drain before I can get them on the page

Or

It is off

Nothing garble that can barely build crumbled up letters and scattered presentation

But in the icy winter of this book

I ask for a slow
Constant
Drip

So it doesn't all freeze.
