be water (v)

be water
stand upright
with pointed shoulders
flaring up at the sky
be firm
and crystalline

be cold
and white
breathing out vapour
deflecting light

be water
not the sweat
we will need to
wipe from the earth's brow

be water
but be the
that's ice


the ominous gloom
in the clarity of water as ice 
melts in the warmth of my hand
