I don’t get sick

All that happens
when i turn the spigot is
the water drains down
into the gutter
and a rainbow oil spill
doesn’t. It floats
to the surface
I try to grab it
and it sinks into
my skin until i am
all filled up with

All that happens when
when I let you in is
not this. i don’t
turn the spigot
I don’t get sick.

I watch the color
drain from your cheeks
you grab my fist
as i am rising

the water runs
clearly again
you can block
the radiation so
i dont get sick.
i like that.
i like this

it doesn’t
taste like poison
when i go to grab
it’s not at nothing
it isn’t slick
there is nothing
oily about it
i don’t get sick.
