The Leak

The Leak

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Slab Leaks and Pinhole Leaks in Orange County, CA | SERVPRO of Laguna Hills  / Laguna Niguel

The Leak

flared copper,
pressure fittings or

a mix of solder and flux 
the crux of clean silver joining

sweat joints


Propane          -          green/blue flame 
wrap singed, singing pipe

tears condense inside the crusted walls and
prevent the perfect union

the furious writing gone
arms and hands cringe and contract 

without direction
and now


leaking

That what You are great with! You take something simple and turn it into brilliance!! GREAT GREAT AND BRILLIANT one Mr. E! I see the leak as a heartbreak, or as a flaw we all have.

"tears condense inside the crusted walls and
prevent the perfect union"

those words are wonderful, they speak to me of facing and enduring too much until the breaking happens, we need balance between mind and heart, strength and softness in order to deal with it a "perfect union" as You say :)

I liked this poem my friend.
"the furious writing gone
arms and hands cringe and contract "
The above lines stood out to me. You could feel the fleeting things being lost. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

Inspite of the best pressure fittings and soldering, the best metals and alloys, the most superbly engineered of us can't help being blocked sometimes and leaking at other times. Life is a tough plumber. I enjoyed your imagery so much here!

I especially relate to this, E.
I have always felt I was simply a conduit, that the writing doesn't really come from me, but comes to me and through me...
My writing just seems to leak out in raucous drops, then stops.

very cool read.

Strange how hard it is to find the cure for brain blockage. A lack of ability to turn words into something more than twenty six letters that have congealed, rusted, grated then gone.. Your words prove what a poet can raise by using a harmless force from somewhere hidden.

This is why my brain is bolted on.
If it leaks, I tighten it up.
If it leaks some more, pt tape.
After that I just get a new head.

very clever. wonderful, top-notch analogy. well said. maybe that's why plumbers get paid so much. sounds like a little pipe dope might be in order. better fix it soon before it turns into a flood ... :)

This to me E, sounds like arthritic joints sitting at a writing desk, where once the pen danced a Phantasia, yet today those fingers ache at trying to wring out any ink from the pen.
I may be reading my own thoughts into this though. Have lost the inclination a bit myself, but all it took was a word spoke that tickled my ear and got me back writing in silly mode...which I am insisting all writing to be, at least until this covid nonsense is over. Too much serious without me adding to it too. 😀
I may be wrong, but writers block via wonky pipes is certainly an original as far as I'm concerned.... Like I'd expect normal from your pen! Perish the thought.😀
