More than likely,

there is a leaky faucet

in your life.


Maybe it’s at

the relationship sink,

or the health bathtub,

or the work shower.  


Drip. Drip. Drip.


Each drop telling you to

pay attention,

find the cause,

fix the issue.


You think,

“It’s not that bad.  

Besides, plumbers are expensive.”


Drip. Drip. Drip. Drip.


In the beginning,

it’s not that bothersome.


The drips are spaced far apart.


As time goes by,

they fall closer together,


and you notice it less,


But soon,

just like that faucet in your real sink,

the water bill is coming due,

and it’s going to have a surprise for you.  


Maybe right now


a good time

to call a plumber.
