I’m guilty for relishing too long in a hot shower, getting licked and lashed by each lavish drop, distractedly brushing my teeth, preferring to wait and warm my washcloth.
I don’t want to take this precious commodity for granted, so casually slipping over and through my fingers down the drain.
Next time I’ll take her and hold her in my hands.
Feel her wetness all around me,
inside of me
and thank her.
