Water Inc.

"The most difficult aspect of coming to an ecological understanding of the world is in changing one's own life style. But they begin in one place and in one form - in our own heads and in our own day to day actions." -Kenneth Cantor


A hawk perched on a telephone pole signals a sombre omen.

It watches a dump-truck's lacklustre performance.

Innocent as we feel today
it is yet to be discovered
how we will pay the price
and what it is worth
to commit these commercial sins.

Lobbying for more lobbies and less logs,
indulging in profit intake,
our matron is a matrix of concrete camouflage,
another airline arising out of thin air growing thicker,
a discourse of capitalist intercourse,
voicing the vocabulary of the anti-vagabond.

We are selling the world's loins down the river in a Coca-Cola can.
