Day 9 small stone: focusing on one thing

Day 9 Focusing

the challenge is small,
to open one bottle.

the maker boasts the use
of less plastic, a green intention

yet the cap is harder to grasp
and it resists my grip.

a single turn. it appears
no different than before, but

if I poke my thumbnail, just so,
a thin line reveals itself.

tiny plastic fingers brace
and break at slight pressure.

now the cap turns easily.
my lips moisten in anticipation:

500 ml of cool water,
a long slow swallow.
