City Water

From the springtime flooding along South MLK
A sh#t-skinned slimy pipe
Pops half way up from a grimy hole
Like a gopher molded from iron ore

Neck and head periscoping left then right
Tiny arms bolted to its furry chest of rust
Surveying the silence of this industrial prairie
And the graves pocked from Foundry hammers

Until a school bell bangs
And a kaleidoscope gang of cell phone kids
Clamber from broken windows and dim doorways
To play in this forbidden park
Riding and rocking the new springer like a rodeo bronco

The old boss back to its subterranean foundation
Another generation
Re-connecting the muddy wells to our silver faucets.

    ..."water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink"...We worry about plastic bottles while ignoring the imminent disasters of 100 year old underground systems...
