In the Shower

in the shower

why not
why not

today?

today I

I turned off
the hot water

did not flinch
as the drops
hit my skin

ricochet
ricochet

hard as a hammer
drilling my breastplate

I held back my shoulders

feeling

completely
and without fear

or restraint

life
suddenly syncopated

for a moment

la la la
oh my
at last

here it is

clam-cold
clam-cold

my soul
long-lost

desolate
degenerate

now howling

alive and awake
like a newborn babe

naked as the day
I first came

into this world

and proclaiming to me
that deep diddy down it is

tearful, yes
but free

a little gold
still ga ga gleaming
among the dross

oh la
ah ha

dear me
diddy dee

fancy that
fancy that
all to happen

just by turning off
the tap

in the shower

in a fraction
humdrum
morning hour

but then again

why not
why not!
