What a lovely word: maintain
   It hums    It longs
                It rhymes with itself   Doubles

           Something of stay       without the stutter

The 'm' and 'n's wrap it up, but softly, let it breathe

                      Contain, but not so tightly

A dish in the sink that doesn't turn into a pile,      a crack      
that doesn't hurry to split all the way          and flood
           These are things I'm working on
