#Poem If it was hot today

If it was hot today
I’d want to lie on my side in a brook
and let the flowing water wash me
shoulder to toes
dissolve the mess
send some nutrients
to the physically smaller life-forms
downstream

I’d be stronger because lighter
not 17 again and kicking down doors
singing other people’s songs
but ready to start anew
maybe a little more cautious this time
maybe not
