Fight to the End

Fight to the End

The tired gray shed
is in the process of detaching itself
very slowly but with full expectation of success
from the back wall of the garage
that miserable structure
struggles with its own problems
One being the weight of exterior shelves holding
an extensive and colorful collection of plastic bottles
Full of chemicals, I guess
Another being that of the difficulty of
holding up a sagging overhang
with too few and semi-rotted supports.
Every man for himself, I guess,
but I think they’d do better
to fall toward each other
rather than away
