I am called down

S

T

I

R

to find a bowl in plan

site

 

Then introduced to the

new filter and its rhythm

 

Place the boel under at a

slight

tilt

because it's so

BIG

Then push it

<-- back 

 to

 the

 button

 for

1

 2

3

 4

5...

Then

STOP!

and wait quietly

1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

Then

PUSH!

and the lights back on

1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

till I fill the whole

gallon

Mammy would do it but she's

been workin since 7

and I feel bad for her

so

=OFF 

 I go

1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

Soon becuase of the cold water

the sides of the

bowl

look like the frosty windows

on the bus in the morning

in fall

Whirling complicated patterens

of water vapor

that kids love to make

thier on new

sketch pad

1, 2, 3, 4, 5,

and the water going down

into

the bowl looks like a

foutain underwater

and upside

down

1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

with the pleasent sound

of bubbles

Pop!

to the

surface

 and know

near the end you

can hear

CLINK!

as the ice

drops and

the whirring if the filter 

1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

Now inside my head 

A now routine movement of

my hand 

CLINK! 

Pop! Pop! Pop!

Whirr!

1, 2, 3...

One line being

covered with water

ont the bowl

then the next

hypmotizing

higher 

and 

higher 

  

   CLICK!

Whirr!

Pop! Pop! Pop!

1, 2, 3, 4, STOP!

It's full!

time to dump it all out

and start over tomorrow

but I dont mind

I like the quiet rhythm
