Sunken

Garden Tub

Meant to invoke thoughts of languid bubble baths

with fragrant candles burning.

Shocking to see

a bath grown cold and kool-aid red,

One arm hanging out over the side.

Drip

Drip

Drip

Unplug the drain.

Let the life slip away with the water.

Fear

hands cupping candle

Oh, you

If it were only the dark you feared

a candle I would light…

my hand would never waiver

to let a breeze extinguish its bright flame.
