Certainty

How much certainty can we abide?
Here in this porcelain bowl of a residence,
is there any room for certainty?
Certainly, it seems that certainty
is fit for any space wherein it’s found,
but this is an illusory truth,
for certainty, it seems,
has a tendency to outgrow its confines.
This is no different – already the cracks
in our residence are beginning to show,
as certainty gorges itself upon a feast
of questions better left unasked.
