cool water @ 04:33 am

upon his first visit to The United States
(Maryland, i believe)
he poured himself a glass of cool water from the tap

on the tropical island he is from
Cool Water is never Cold
just not hot... only warmed by the ambient heat of everything there

here... Up North
the water comes out of the tap with a chill
he was entirely thrilled

he was just a boy
and could not stop drinking
until he'd made himself sick

i think of this
waking at 4am from being overheated by down and radiator
and pouring myself a glass of water
