Tomorrow morning
When you wake


Don't turn up the heat just yet
Head for the bath
Turn on the shower


As hot as you can stand
Step in
Immerse yourself in the steam
Until every pore has opened

Now turn, back to the water
And step forward to the far wall
Arch your head back
And lean forward slightly
Until your nipples touch the icy tile

Pay attention
As the shock threads its way
Into your shoulder blades


You are alive.
No one can steal this.
