I telephoned the plumbers,

but they had no specialists

to suit my needs. I've a

broken osmo-regulatory system

and the permanent dripping

is rusting my skin in sticky resignation.

Everything and anything can draw

droplets free, in pathetic sympathy

and my machinery isn't functioning,

My chest growls and I'm soaking wet,

My nose is hiccupping wetly –

but they can't find a human plumber.
