Thirsty

Thirsty

used to have something to do
with how your tongue
gets thick
and the top of it turns to
cellophane — all crinkly and
hard to talk like that

Thirsty

used to mean that
close by but
not within reach is something
that will make it better and
all the anticipation is making it worse

Thirsty

comes
before satisfaction but not
if you go by any old
dictionary and its rules

Thirsty

used to be
just the prelude
to wet
