from where I came

exposed to the elements

water in air sets fire

to this earthly metal pail

and given the proper time

the corrosion of my surface

will rust – flake in flaming decay –

weathering a hole in my bucket

dear Henry

a hole

the tawny erosion

ruddy cheeks of deterioration

eating away my outer layer

slowly I disintegrate back into earth

from where I came
