water everywhere
field mice
don scuba gear

and hawks
stalk salmon with gills
fit to breathe

the damp atmosphere
clouds mate
with seasons casually

they drift easily
from one to the next
raindrops meet

the pavement like
a thousand million
gray hard statements

of fact this place
will be last
to notice we recite

comfortable fictions
to buttress life
against uncertainty

half empty or full
as if the answer had
meaning nothing asked

about what's inside
glass half empty of water
or half full of piss

how it tastes or what if
it dropped to the floor or
even that someone might

step past the glass over
splinters to the sink and
sip from the faucet
