RAIN TANK

by on December 2, 2008 :: 0 comments

Found an old rain tank
in the woods,
from the days when
this was farmland.

Inside
was moss
a million shades
of green and brown
and the stink
of a morgue full
of corpses.

Here was
the giver of life
long past the time
when the giving was done.

I turned the tap
and nothing came out.
Still, everything
has to start somewhere.
