Living in Seattle,
there is tons of water
from fountains, bodies of water
and the never ending rain.
We collect it in our coffee cups
and swirl it around like creamer.
We wear it upon our skin
until it pools together into new fashion.
We hold it in open palms
and offer it forward as new age communication.
If water is the center of life,
then Seattlites are swimming in lifestyle.
Just saying, when the rest of the United States is on fire,
Washington State chills in its oversaturated moisture.
Just saying, at one point Captain Kirk and Nestle
wanted to drain Washington into to save its vanishing reserves.
I guess I am saying,
I am really a mermaid
on dry land.
I spend my days dancing in raindrops and puddles
and swim in the first morning light
through the dark sea of the city skyline.
