possible settings for the moment of our first kiss #2

the dry dusty bowl of a city park fountain
2nd year running of water restrictions
we enter the bowl because we can
you say
I'm thirsty
over your shoulder I see the truck approaching
RECLAIMED WATER in big black letters
its heavy load causes the suspension to wobble
somewhere an abandoned high school swimming pool
suddenly understands
the unbearable lightness of being
I tell you
don't turn around
close your eyes
and when the water reaches your waist
you won't be thirsty anymore
