Water & Time An Audio Poem with Text by Robin Ouzman Hislop

 
 

 
 

Water&Time

shortage

shotdown

shutdown

in our

short age

water&time

buy

and sell

the sky

eat drink

& be merry

for tomorrow

we buy

new oil

blue gold

POD

in the Hub

& pull the plug

dip your toes

in the flow

& watch

the money

grow

water water

everywhere

up for auction

like health care

in

competetive

water wealth

as you

float

on your back

in your

swimming pool

& stare

into

the unending

reach

of space

as if it were

a resource

in nature’s

supermarket

to buy

& sell

the price

of life

drop

by drop

into

the algorithm

where we’re

waiting in line

standing in

the queue

of shortage

in our

short age

water & time
