WAITING FOR THE WATER TRUCK
In Republica Dominica, in 1984,
I missed the bottled water truck because I chose to snore…
I was not told
I must be bold,
To flag it down as it drove by our door!
Now, in 2012, similarly,
I wait for the morning Cable guy to see…
Couldn’t sleep a wink
When I began to think,
Of missing the chance to reconnect the phone and TV!
