You know how sometimes, just sometimes,
You can control the fizz in the bottle just so.
It never bubbles over or blurts out on you
When you get the cap-twist just right, it keeps
The soda from popping, but it doesn’t let it
Go flat either. That’s what’s so perfect about
Your control. It holds the water in the bottle.
There is no geysering all over the towel on
Your bike, your shorts, your shirt. You have
Kept the flow from overing onto everything.
Sometimes, when you can control the spritz, just
So, it all just remains in check, and is restrained.
You have disciplined it and guided it. You are
In charge, clearly, that liquid is under your sway.
