Suspicious

I am suspicious
of the universe
which seems chaotic
but always somehow arranges
for both elevators
in my building
to break down
at the same time

I am not convinced
this is an accident
and could be persuaded
that a malevolent elevator god
was hovering
above my apartment
continually pushing
a big red button

Now
if you will excuse me
I must walk up
fifteen flights of stairs
while wishing
I had refilled
my water bottle
when I had the chance
