Donna Spruijt-Metz - The New Science of Slippery Surfaces

is revolutionizing containers.
Oil will slide through pipelines,
glue will flow, bacteria will be unable


to find purchase in stents and IV lines.
Through my one summer
as an incompetent waitress


I watched people trying to slap
ketchup out of bottles, then
use a knife. Here in the coffee shop,


I wait for you and watch
a student at the next table wrestle
with the Sriracha. And you,


my daughter, in your doctor’s coat,
your wedding ring, sit down
across from me. I try not to want


too much. Consider all the ways
we try to get things out
that seem to want to stay in,


as if there were a will to it.
