Work Request #935-087356
The water pressure in Greenough is terribly low.
It makes the bathroom line notedly slow.
We stand exchanging pleasantries as one of us washes her hands,
another steps back from brushing her teeth,
we each take a turn between
getting into conversations about rushing and a cappella and archaeological evidence about death rituals of the Neolithic Era.
We stand looking at ourselves and the other in the mirror,
reflecting on our days and how we don’t quite like how we spend our nights
and I wonder if our conversations would last this long
if the water moved faster.
Maybe waiting takes some of the pressure of “everything else” off
and so we’re not in such a rush
and perhaps I won’t email YardOps with my work request just yet.
