Water; Am I (Aqua Poetica) Part XI

Water

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

Water


p.11 – Aqua Poetica
