Cracks in the Foundation


San Andreas Fault


Allison Cline-Saia


I wake up wondering if this will be the day–

every single day the cracks get deeper

the crevices  grow                           wider

the space between will never be filled.  Gaps

like the Grand Canyon

years and years of slow melancholy stripping away

the bits of me still there.

Seismic shifts in the tectonics that slam together

and drift apart.

The ever-changing landscape of me morphing

Continuously in cyclic fashion —

Never constant

Yet somehow solid.
