The baser difficulties it seems will 
pop up willynilly just when one is
carrying on rather well in the areas of
personal fulfillment
friends and relations
gods and monsters
bigger questions of life.
Just when one feels oneself blooming
along comes the leaky roof
the fallingdown house
the rotting window frame
the flooded basement
the dental crisis
the decline of income
the sudden failure of automobiles.
Along they will pop, essentially innocent,
not meaning any real harm and yet.
Into one’s precarious equilibrium
they wedge themselves, overturning the
rickety old held together with bailing twine apple cart.
