Not Water Resistant

Little Shoppers Drug Mart watch
you are not water resistant
which makes my heart weep
for beneath your cut-rate crystal
is what is probably a permanent array of droplets
that have not made you stop working
but nonetheless
make you somewhat hard to read

Today
the wet spot has shrunk to a bit of mist
and I wonder if the droplets will return
the terrible terrible droplets
and
if so
whether they will finally
cause something vital to rust

Perhaps
I should get my decent watch fixed
and not keep relying
on cheap replacement watches
from a drug store
