Plumbers

The plumber’s voice booms like a sea captain 
or the sea, or the man with a telescope who calls out what lies ahead 
or lurks beneath 
resounding in the bathroom 
where a man resounds back

The plumber’s friend
sizing up the horizon
the grimy waves
the slosh and slap and bucket clang

They calm the waters
Open the ways

Bless them
