OVERFLOW

Water spills onto the bathroom floor.

 

Rain  quickly becomes a storm. A puddle becomes a flood.

It does not just rain in your bathroom;

The water drips from the kitchen ceiling.

 

Waterboard torture of my childhood.

 

There is no movement, there are no ripples, there are no waves.

The house distorts itself in pain.

I curl with the corners of the kitchen floor.

 

Soon, the whole house will rain.
