“Water”

How it shimmers
and shines beneath the light
of every sun that ever lived
and every world that ever died
thinking about all the good it could do
before it burned and boiled away.

there’s some collecting here
in a dent of dead dirt
it looked so bright once
but now it’s brown and bleak
and broken and full of silt
setting out to suffocate.
