Last Straw

It is the last straw

Which finally pushes me out
of the space I’ve been occupying,

Just occupying
like duck sauce packets that get tossed away


This sack of water has potential energy
which can
Instantaneously transform into kinetic energy.

It can jump from an airplane.
It can flow like a river
of living waters.
It can follow you.

And that means changing location
exploring my geography
asking for directions.

And that means
admitting I am lost
without you.
