I drink the water from my hands

I drink the water from my hands
In stadium bathrooms
while the masses stand in line for extortion sodas

I walk past the dog quietly
I only turn on the shower light
I drink the water from my hands

Daddy said if the water ran fast enough
it was clean
We stood below the spill pipe
and held out our hands

We never got sick
