Coconut Water

On the third day of my fast coconut water
tastes like thin milk from some maternal breast
I chug it from a carton playing chess
online   although I know I really ought to
haste into shower    & ready for the day
not dithering under poetry's white sway
and so indeed the verse gets tailored shorter
in life sometimes sweet brevity is best
