When do you need water?

Weird question, but I really just want you to take care of yourself. I say this because I’m currently not drinking water. Take.care.of.yourself. I’m currently caring. Not drinking water.

This force of nature, this dependency. When do you need it? Can it wait? Your body. I bet it’s complicated. I just poured myself a glass. I wanted to.

I want you to too. You a little more than me.
