revisiting poetry

So I've been reading poetry again. And working on a little bit, too.
I scratched this out in bed before falling asleep last night. I like it. But it's certainly still rough.


i thought it would be harder
i thought it would be work
until it wasn't

it was a softening--

just water lapping
and you said, "there's no better sound
than a dog drinking"

water lapping, up and against

but so calmly, kindly
calmly, kindly
i wasn't expecting that part.
