My Darling Drinker,

What if
I told you

I am a
Simple
Pond

Under
Late-stage
Capitalism?

—-

At first
Glance, I
Look so
Drinkable.

[And drink
You did]

But, little
Did you
Know
,

I have
Long been
Poisoned.

—-

At the
Time,

I did only
What my
Contents

Were
Capable of,

What my
Molecules
Were
Mixed with.

—-

I could
Offer

Nothing
More
to
You, than

Ecological
Collapse.

—-

Which
Is to say:

That harm
I did to your
Insides was

Nothing
Personal.

—-

For what
It’s worth,

I’ve since
Undergone

Extensive &
Fluid self-
Processing.

—-

Perhaps,
One day

I will even
Be safely
Drinkable

In a way
You always

Deserved to
Be quenched.
