Inktober 2023 - DRIP

DRIP -  7th Ocrober

A single drip goes unnoticed. The splash imperceptible.

Another, five seconds later - just about detectable.

A rhythm is created, when five seconds later

Another drip is headed to the beginnings of a crater.

A fourth and fifth and sixth appear with regularity

Seven, eight, nine and ten build familiarity.

Double figure drippage, it's difficult to ignore

One starts to wish the tap would generate no more.

Drip, drip, drip - the pain it starts to grow

As all senses focus on the water's disrupted flow.

The torture is incessant, please make it stop.

There's no way I can take, the sound of another drop.
