"A stalagmite in my freezer rises / Formed drip by drop up from the frozen floor"

One of Those Little Surprises


A stalagmite in my freezer rises

Formed drip by drop up from the frozen floor

This is one of those little surprises

Which lacking a cogent why and wherefore

Can only make us ask and speculate

As to what it might mean as it is seen

Growing daily as relentless as fate

Inscrutable and cold and crystalline


Today it is beginning to prevent

My access to the coffee can behind

It seems so serious and so intent

Upon its growth as if possessed of mind

I touch it with respect in greeting when

I visit as intruder to its lair

Have tea instead and leave the coffee then

I know not what it means: but it is there
