mmm lips are dry should drink some more water
i’m comfortable here it’s warm
more water more restful sleep though
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
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.
