Lots Of Water

Washing hair
washing clothes
washing floors
makes lots of water used if done every day
and they’re all laborious routines of conventionality that are inconvenient burdens
that make contemplation wait for a more convenient time
thereby setting back good knowing
of the best there is to know that
doesn’t require
clean hair
clean clothes
clean floors
to know
or lots of water used
to make its worth known.
It’s more fun to work a jigsaw puzzle
And jigsaw puzzles allow for
contemplation not to be put off
and — saving water
If you’re good at jigsaw puzzles
contemplation fits right in
and lots of water isn’t wasted while you puzzle.


Too Much Water
