Saving Water

Grew up in a desert land
don’t need much water to survive
if I drink too much I pee often
providing moisture for other living things.

I adapted to dryness like the cacti
a little prickly and comfortable alone
better able to cope with the coming drought
than the people who live near the sea.

Their cells demand lots of fluids
need to immerse themselves in water,
they seek green environments 

while I thrive in the barren landscapes
among the mesas and Joshua trees.
