most of us are self-righting vessels

but mostly

we ignore signs

 

a bit of rust

the way doors don’t open

and close smoothly

 

little wearings-down

lived with that might conspire to fail

in a mighty sad convergence

 

such a swamping might

sink a stalwart soul while

floating all around

 

storm-wracked friends

change hands or peel

or take up a bright wash of paint
