Things fall apart...

There are roots in the pipes
and nails in the rear tire.

There are mice behind the fridge
and flies buzzing over dinner.

The hot water in the tank is insufficient
and the washer keeps switching breakers.

The bottom drawer is off it's hinges
and there is an odor I can not place.

The weeds have won the battle
and our harvest rots on the counter.

Things fall apart
and I am trying not to.

Me too. Except is was a screw and it was the front tire. And they couldn't repair it, of course, so I had to get 2 new ones.
