Water Damage

Tricky little yoghurt pot, cannot get my spoon in full, cannot reach the bottom part, haven’t yet managed a mouthful…
The condensation on the side is making my hand pretty chilly, making my fingers get wet, making me feel rather silly…
But still I persevere some more, try my spoon the other way, tapping my foot on the floor, maybe this will take all day…
Maybe I’ll be here for years, try my thumb and try my finger, try my tongue, teeth in the way… and still the lower yoghurt lingers…
…and still the condensation gathers, drip drip dripping from my hands, dripping slowly down my leg and dripping slowly to the ground…
…soon my socks begin to dampen, my toes all white and porous, soon my chair begins to float whilst I hum this little chorus…

tricky little yoghurt pot,
why can’t I get to that spot,
at the bottom of the pot,
is there a technique I’ve forgot?

Floating slowly through the streets, past the church and past the steeple, past the school and past the butchers, past the other floating people..
..they don’t seem to float so well, I see them splash and hear their cries, but my yoghurts pots still tricky, I don’t want to avert my eyes,
I feel the acid around my tonsils, I don’t want to put down my spoon, I feel the water in my mouth, hope to reach the yoghurt soon…
