A poem

There are times
when the brackish flood waters

And you can finally see the surface
that supports your soaking feet
and shaking legs.

The storm ravaged everything.
Cease your inventory.
Stave off despair.

Bend and collect your
straggling and soaked survivors.
So much is gone.

Except the floor you…
