Two guys came by doing 'feasibility studies'
for the new real estate project and they began
by asking me if I've noticed any change in
surface water. 'A little late to ask me that, no?'
The project they were asking about was already
begun about and year and a half ago. 'Surface
water? Let me show you the aquarium that
is my basement.' I offerd them a glass of water,
from that tap of course, that briney, golden
glow that almost looks like beer; figuring they'd
like that. We can't drink; sorry, we're on the
job. Yeah sure, likely story.
