I think I will stop looking in wells or sewers,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      drainpipes or anything made to wall or divert

fences, too, and double-locked doors, all                                                                                                               are welcome to their own ways, I am tired                                                                                                                        

of turning over honey jars pounding them                                                                                                                                                                                     
with greed and desire,  

No more trying to wring water from ice-stiff dishrags
in kitchens with mice in cold cupboards.

I think I will just sit here silent, by the open door,
see what comes in, seems unlikely though.
