2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 3

For today's prompt, write a location poem. The poem can be about a location, but it doesn't have to be. It could also just incorporate a location into the poem (like a love poem in Paris or something). This poem could also state your feelings about location in general.

Here's my attempt:

"Don't let the heat escape"

There's something holy about my morning
ritual shower. Hot water cleanses
and wakes me to the possibilities
of the day. But I have to close the door
to steam the mirrors, so I cannot see
my reflection when I re-emerge clean.
