Water; Am I (Aqua Poetica) Part X

Water

 

My city provides it

Meters my use of it

An endless supply

Of water, I could fill

Pools with water

It costs almost nothing

 

Minneapolis is a city of

Water, of lakes, streams

Rivers, we are rich with

Water, fat with water, wet

Green, and blue, like jewels

Scattered on the plains

In the wake of glaciers

Melting in retreat

 

Water
