Water; Am I (Aqua Poetica) Part XI


Three hundred thousand people
Living in Minneapolis, drawing
Water for houses, and gardens
Businesses and parks, drawing
Water from the Mississippi
The river, connecting everyone
In a network of pipes, of channels
Carrying water, in pipes under
Pressure, a maze of pipes so vast
No Minotaur could have devised it
So complex, no Theseus navigate
The clear clean


p.11 – Aqua Poetica
