TAP WATER

March 21, 2019

 

You drink tap water

and listen to top 40, singing to the songs you like

while driving along route 25

staring at the mountains in the sunshine

You think maybe someday you’ll have enough money you can just buy bottled water

kind without the bitter taste

once it drips from the glass down your throat

 

It’s nice to have dreams

 

You don’t know what you’re going to do for money

but then you never have known

feasibly

never will know

 

You’re happy

inexplicably

despite the fact your savings

is dwindling by the day

 

Fuck it

Live a little

 

You’re happy

 

You drink tap water
it keeps you hydrated
