When I think of you, I think water. I think of your eyes, blue as the sea reflecting the sky. I think of Sammy Davis, Junior, crooning in the pale desert. I think of my thirst for your cool voice, a little throaty. I think of you surging over me, cresting like a legend of white-foam horses airbrushed on the side of some metalhead's rusting cinder-blocked van. I think of things, like longing, that expand when they freeze. I think how we were always 70% of an us. I think of fog on a mirror. Condensation. Steamed windows in an '84 hatchback 'Stang. I talk to you, and my hair curls. I carry you deep under my skin like permafrost. Your sentences unrepeating like snowflakes, yet somehow all the same. I think of the flautist and the dames, their skirts like hovercrafts. (Do you remember the night we met?)

"The largest hydroelectric plant in the United States is at Grand Coulee Dam. Its three powerplants have a capacity of 6,809 MW, and it generates, on average, about 21 billion KWh, while Hoover Dam's powerplant has a capacity of 2,074 MW and generates approximately 4 billion KWh a year." Which is not to say that you were anywhere near these places. Or me.

I think of sweat, pooling in the hollow of your back and lifting under the merciless sun leaving crystal hieroglyphs and the scent of you on your soft brown undershirt.

I think of water. I think of the bridge, how long it's been since water passed under it. I think of you, and I think

Of the moon's dry seas.

Q. "Why is a mouse when it spins?"

A. To make the next generation of mice when it stops spinning. Unless you are in favor of the Baltimore Catechism, which states the mouse is to know the mousy version of God, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world and be happy with Him in heaven.

Alternately, it could be pointed out that the mouse's gyrations are a symptom common in rodents who have consumed all the adjectives in a sentence, or "Because you have not asked the question in Lojban, which probably has a mechanism for pointing out what part of a sentence is the object of the querying word, and maybe one for avoiding sentences that are syntactically correct, but make no objective sense.

"And one day, he came to realize that when the Dread Pirate was saying, 'Good night, Wesley. Sleep well. I will most likely kill you in the morning,' what he meant was, 'I love you.'"
