oil and water

oil and water

speak to the truth
of our time together
the drive gone
from the start

we could better
shoot the rapids
of the wildest river
our boat sinking
the entire time

than find the drive
to refute the testimony
of any fly on the wall

no right way
no wrong
just straight through
no matter the cost

even as we resisted
at every step
no effort to preserve
even rekindle the fire
until it came to a close

This is my response to Wordle #585 at The Sunday Whirl.

boat | preserve | speak | resist | oil | fire | drive | fly | shoot | matter | close | right
