Christ, if I
could just bring

some water
to those workers 

struggling on the pavement—
you know the ones—

hardhatted, neonvested, 
rippling in the distant sun—

that would be
the simplest thing

the purest thing
the only thing—

clear wet water
in little white cups—

the most transparent 
thing I've ever done.
