Drinking water makes him wise
and voluble. It’s always turned what
seemed insoluble into a clarity and joy.

It started when he was a little boy.
Lapping from a tap when he was four,
he found he always wanted more.

Now he fills his glasses to the brim.
Some say drinking can be grim,
but drinking’s never grim for him.
