Free From Drowning

Can you purge what is to be purged
can the fabric be made clean
or simply washed to hide corruption

Can you empty the house
and call it clear
while the bricks still bleed dirt

When the flood passes
are the tide marks washed away
or absorbed into the mortar and wood
to rot away the structure

And, above all
can the stained ever deny
that the mark is them
clinging to it
as shelter
and frame

Enjoy? Then check out my other work
