Our bodies are mostly water

and my head is swimming as I lie.

Consciousness swirling in eddies,

I’m drowning in myself.

Water

flows downhill

finds its level

makes its way

adapts.

Water

boils over

floods plains

rises to the sky

adapts.

Water

nurtures

pours

roars

adapts.

Water

drips

drops

adapts.

I

am

water.

Water rushing,

whispering journey,

rippling over rocks

hurrying yearning

for shimmering

ocean.

poem- drinking problem August 27, 2013

Your rose velvet tongue

washes with water, cool and clear

You stretch and strain as if to gather

rain drops-

but stop!

Listen!

as you lick those glistening lips,

Your kisses become unwelcome, quick!

We stand  disgusted and agog:

Don’t drink

from the toilet,

dog!
