HABIT

Receiving our water
from the mountain spring--
it fills our jars where it gushes
out of the rock till we're finished,
then comes the urge to turn it off...

When I lived on the homestead outside of Fairbanks, we used to get drinking water from an artisian spring just outside of Fox, Alaska. In the summer, there was a lemoniad truck that came around that used this water. On the side of the truck it said, "Made with Fox water." And for tourists and other visitors, that was a strange thing to admit to.

Speaking of water, I wish we could turn off the spicket here in the mid-Atlantic.
