And though it's the roof that leaksyou will be buried inside a stonekept wet day after day for the echo
sea ice prepares from the dripit needs to drain Ėthis ladderwill end with nails and a hammer
where one wall will slip, alreadyis leaning into another then anothertill all Earth becomes the Nile
and you are in the attic, rising from a shorethough it's the sky that's hidden, collapsingempty under the cold rain now ready for you.
