Memory of Water

They say
that water catches song
or mood
passion
sorrow
and it never forgets

They say
it can heal
poison
because it carries
its imprint

It knows
what you need
because it felt
your presence
before you drank it

They say
you can bring someone comfort
by giving them water
tea
by pouring them baths
or soothe pain
in a shower

They say
a water birth
is something
to behold

They say
it feels

They say
it relays information

They say
we are made of water

They say
that the earth
is four fifths water

They say
all that water
gets recycled
every couple of years
from cloud
to fountain
stream
river
fall
fjord
lake
dam
sea
ocean
icecap
and steam
from your tea
tears
spit
urine
blood
breath

-------------------------

And then they forgot
every thing they said
dump dumping dumped
dam damming Damned
Washed their hands

Said they didn’t know then
what they know
now.

---------------------------

They say
you can float
in the dead sea
but you can't drink it
