Contemplating My Reflection in a Puddle on the Last Day of the 20th Century

Dan Gerber

Even this still water wants to be somewhere else,
another way of saying, it's motion
seeking space,
drawn to the earth as rain,
or into the air as vapor,
off on a quest, in-
eluctably drawn to find itself,
disguised in you and me.
