Trigger Warning

And shower water
falls like moonlight at armistice
for the elderly or youth
in the all together,
Now feeling fresh
and spiritual
in mind, the unweary
after the shower
water the enigma
dripping on the shower mat
feeling like an astronaut
but looking like a humanoid,
And wondering why towels
must erase the sensation
of the tingling
of a kind of re-birthing
away and too quickly
into the world
of water wars and business.
