I Wake Up Thirsty, By Jennifer Angelina Petro

I Wake Up Thirsty


Jennifer Angelina Petro



Every night, I wake up thirsty.

The only thing to do

Is lie back in the dark water,

Letting the dried, inner chambers

Soak through and through,

And then dream–

Dream I am a waterwheel,

And you—a silent river flowing through me.
