Watering Hole
I need a watering hole
bug or beast,
fish or fowl,
mammal or mayfly,
we all need it
our eyes can catch sight of it
in the deserty distance
and sometimes
it’s close,
so close
but we’re on the wrong side
of the water splattered glass
looking out
so useless
we can only see it
only cry,
cry for help.
Will anyone help?
Yes or no?
We can only hope,
hope that the ayes will have it,
otherwise the eyes are all there are
and only wet enough for the lucky little ones.
