Water Bill

The water bill was

way too high, last time.

It must be the time I spend
not thinking, for once
freeing, letting thoughts slide
down my skin
down the drain
with a hot shower, I can’t
turn the dial on,
because outside the glass doors
is drying in the cold, and
a foggy mirror, and
long wet hair to comb, and

a water bill.

Maybe I can stay in another minute.
