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
