On Getting a Warm Shower

Rectangular blotches of sunshine

Three cinder blocks down from the ceiling

Herald the seven o’clock hour

Inmate’s incarceration sun dial

Serves instead of the clock

Blocked from view

In the penthouse suite.

Hollow cavernous sequential flushing

Announces her impending shower to the block

Warm water summoned solely

By depleting the bathroom of cold

Environmentalists left unconsulted

In this system’s design

Perhaps sociologists were—

Teamwork in the face of frigid shower

The most effective solution.
