A Glass of Water

A Glass of Water

A Poem by Caius Frank
"

The ice in the glass of water next to me shifts

"

The ice in the glass of water next to me

shifts


It makes a sound against the glass


And suddenly


I am on the leather couch of my grandparents


The glass has my grandmothers lipstick print


A drop of water


falls 


down the side of the glass


It has a smell I know 


that isn’t here
