"Cancatervate"

*To cancatervate is the act of heaping things up into a pile (so, I suppose every autumn we cancatervate the fallen leaves when we rake the yard). So this poet decided to share his/her personal ritual of cancatervation...*

Constantly I
Amass my
Numerous daily
Concerns
And stack them on
Top of one another
Ever mounting them until they
Reach the pinnacle of my
Volcanic Vesuvius, then comes the
Avalanche, Eruption, Magma Tsunami,
Toppling down in furious frenzy until
Exhausted, I reach for the ice cream.
