Ad hoc

mmm lips are dry should drink some more water
i’m comfortable here it’s warm
more water more restful sleep though
more efficient
six hours is all i’m getting at this point anyway
more restful for less comfort now

of course just enough left in the pitcher to make this a thing
am I really just standing here waiting for the water to filter
worth it still
plant looking a little dry
hey looks like we’ll all be getting a good drink before bed
green mops winking in the shadows
like kids watching through dreamy eyelashes 
father’s silhouette washing up for bed

got to look closely watering without glasses
and just the sole stark kitchen light
going by sound mostly
dribbled again bamboo always fills up quick
but it doesn’t matter big picture

i should write this down at some point
interesting anecdote
connects to life in a real life kind of way

now time for my water 
see how much has filtered
looks low enough
pour slowly so none of those filtered flecks go into the glass
don’t want to give them any funny ideas

So I’ll drink the rest here at bedside.
Writing this very sentence down.
Lights out in the kitchen.
There’s a little black speck a couple more whitish ones.
I’ll drink them anyway.
Finish the story and go to bed.
More restful.

    Great fresh poem here. Very unique, natural 'flow' to it. Some good introspection too. Well written. Chris.
