I am nine and Noah is five
he gets in my way when I go to hop through the sprinkler.
he wants to jump through and slide on the grass
his swim trunks green on the butt
I grab the sprinkler and unscrew the hose
I'm going to drink up all the water so there won't be any more.
the sprinkler won't work and you can't jump through it ever again.

I drink; it's warmish and nasty
Noah is in panic
it's not worth it so I screw it back in
he doesn't thank me but he laughs and howls and laughs
