Poem #45

Another One

How things are 
supposed to be:
Easy, some say.
Not like me, then.
Not like this, when
(as is so often the case)
clean carpets seem 
and yet... 
They may cost 
three days
of lying in bed
about taking another 
of water 
     ---from that cup
      over there,
      on the nightstand---
and listening to myself 
breathe: OK,
time, now,
for another one.
