WASTE
(2/25/14)


I rinse
out the coffee
pot
before filling it
with more
water

more water
than I'll need
for the coffee
that I'll drink
this morning

when
the machine
has dripped
its last
I rinse out
my coffee cup
before filling it
to the brim

then
after
my first cup

on my
way
for another

I have to make
a restroom stop
where I
flush
most of my
previous intake
down the urinal

before lunch
I pour the remainder
of the coffee
from pot
and cup
down the drain
and rinse
them both
again

~

some
day

some
day
possibly
soon

I am going
to be
very thirsty
and have
no idea
why
