Hour Four: Surface Tension

Hour 4: Surface Tension
There are weights that no surface can bear
Spilling out globules of pain
That roll under refrigerators and couches
Scurry between pages, dive into drawers
To lie in wait for the next spring cleaning, the eventual moving day
When they propel themselves right at the heart
Ripples of memory following
Sinking deep in the gut
Sinking deeper, deeper, deeper
Till we’re slumped on the floor
Spilling out globules of pain all over again.
