Tag Archives: toilet repair

a work in progress

there are tools strewn
here and there

the monkey wrench consorts
with the flat-head screwdriver

I managed to replace the toilet bob,
which keeps the tank from overflowing,
but the shut-off valve will not completely
close, giving a slow drip of water
out onto the blue and green beach towel.

and to think I left this poem
sitting here,
brimming with possibility.
