You Draw Love

You draw love
As you drink
Like a bored housewife beside her
Rotary phone

Judicious sips
When you should
Gulp…
Deep well, girl
This is a deep well
Look down into history

Up, into the face of God
But you are right
About cliches–
playing with fire…
Springs eternal

In the end only He will draw love
With his right hand
And we will hold ours out in supplication
For living water
