In A Drowned House

L.T. Garvin

In a drowned house

water rushes through

the corners of seams

over pine floors,

soffits and studs,

stairs and rooftops

flood water rises as

cries drift upon night winds

flooding hope into turmoil

clawing the bank of deliverance

bayous border riddles of

the vanishing shoreline

flood gates set free

relics from the past

the sea’s undeniable gasp

the hard wash of the earth

Who can fell these tides of anguish?

Sorrowful waves crash

the broken dreams of

ancient mariners

no albatross flies here

tainted water

blood to loss

the endless gurgle

graves to surface

water submerges ground

the outward creeping puddle

the churning wake of disaster
