This morning water runs hot from the tap.
The soap frothing and filling the smooth white
of the carefully mechanized tupperware,
designed solely to hold water for dishes.
In order to appear from my faucet
there were first men who imagined piping systems
that would connect a whole city to running water.
they took their dreams
carefully blueprinting them out
building a team,
money was secured
now new men with new dreams
took blueprints already drawn
ensured that they were followed
adapted where they were needed
all the while
water pumped by hand
washing dishes truly a chore
water runs hot from the tap.
