I am Water

Rate: 3 Flag
I am water
flowing through time

once the water ran cold
absolute cold
when I was first born
the words of my story ran hot
birth and dying were my bookends
all that was true
in my life

a word for this
and a story about that
burying with words the only cold truth
of being born
and the cold fear of dying
in-between
a library of warm words
 my story
through this faucet
my vision, every cell in my brain
distorted the cold truth of being born alive
with
the hot meaningless words of my life
now
in my final moment
I will be cold once more
 
Lee Harvey Oswald
in his final public moment touched
absolute zero
but
the photo, the books
filled in his bookends with hot words
it is what we do
it is all we can ever do
is to cook the truth with our words
