the most intelligent species

the most intelligent species

if I'm drinking
coffee 
when I want to sleep
beer 
when I want to sate my hunger
tequila 
when I want to sober up
if I am surrounded by 
water-resistant concrete
and reaching up to my sky
are lightning rods alone
giant metal trash cans
are swimming over my seas
who can claim my body
is seventy percent water?
