muddy water

by Willow Germs

I do not drink from the muddy water
even though I know just where the faucet is
and I feel so thirsty

what is the name for that
that gut feeling
the one that tells you
to do the wrong thing
it wants you to drink that
that muddy water, lusts after it
and how do you kill it?

do you remember those girls
who told you your shoes were too clean?
they were right
even if they were not gentle

you’ve got to get dirty to get what you want
you get dirty by climbing out
