The Leaking Sink

Originally penned on 5th February 2016

The drops of the leaking sink,
The jangling of the children’s keys,

Sounds in and around this wordless void make it a parallel existence,
The suspense of it being its exposed essence,
One which goes beyond just silence and touches the deeper concepts,
The unchallenged presets,
Like “What is persistence?”
Since we cannot persist in a tense, can we ever really get what we want when we intend?

The drops of the leaking sink,
The jangling of the children’s keys,
What is it that this quiet brings?

 

Yours in perpetuity,
