Remember yourself
Water guides you
Has this power to rock
You into your soul

A river, an ocean
Your bath
A pathway to your fingerprints
Quietly breathing your own smell

Towers of books
A bright light, the wind
The high far away stars
Cold clear air looking for your teeth

That was today
Tomorrow, hope for the same
You let water, copper remind you of
Strong, healthy, mindful, free

Hiding behind third person,
Vague metaphors and poetry
Will work only when it’s midnight
On windy nights in February
