a crack in the concrete

a crack in the concrete
base of a post slowly pulls
apart the caulk patch

Cracks appear to be everywhere and slowly getting bigger. Narrow cracks in a wooden post and a wide crack in the concrete base. Even the long black shadows look like deep fissures in the pavement. Someone has tried to patch the break in the concrete footing, but the crack appears to be winning the tug of war with the caulking. The inexorable march of entropy, yet I am charmed by the sinuous line of the white caulk winding up through the black crack, like laugh lines on an old face.
