Day Zero: Pop

Stirred: Warm World is tonight, doors at 7.00, special guests: Jennie Bailey, Cathy Bryant and Ian Bowkett,

This is Anna’s piece written in the Blank Space workshop using the prompts shown in this post.

Phrase: This is the end of the world as we know it


Pop    pop    pop    pop

the way water bubbles up

enters houses unbidden

sluicing through a safe place

with all the dirt and debris

it has met on its way

noble redundant gestures

of sandbags and fleeing up

when built these water rushes

not planned for geysering

weather was less sudden

a fish life not thought of

the calm that was known

behind a locked door

water knows nothing of locks

the force unbolts and splinters security

I will never take a ground floor flat

nightmares of water logged Paperbacks

swollen dirtied unreadable
