You Lurking There~ Pd Lietz

I espied bitter water swirl down the drain
as I rinsed off the dirt that was you 
I feel a layer of scum remains
how does one become so soiled
where once creative juices flowed
how long did the water need to boil
to kill the presence of the airborne
spores and viruses vying to land
do have grace, on someone else adorn
I am tired of stroking your feathers
as you stick out your desperate chest
undo this god-damn tether
you a peon scouring this daily drudge
that I have allowed to become my world
where it is but too easy to prejudge
behind spurious steam
I know you’re lurking there
mirror mirror on the wall
