Way Back When Water
It satisfied me most, made me appreciate things
as God made them
not as we re-make, or fiddle with them
tastes clean from the well, not like chlorine from the city utilities,
Water running out of the taps in my house, clean to drink
plentiful plantful gardens
flowering out and fruiting
imports not required to eat, even quinoa.
Plentiful options, chilis, chocolates, grains and legumes
flowering textures and flavors, grainy, smooth, buttery.
water that I used twice a day to wash my skin
