this is the third dry year and 
this year is the deepest 
of the dry years

the commentator says
as though dryness were a well
sinking down and down

into eventual wetness
taking me rustily 
down and down in a bucket

mouth parched body humid
waiting and wanting
the eventual to be now

for the dip, float and gush
