Imagining fire-water will
get you drunk & water-fire
is for the mystic & the

oil exec. who mixes (in
"crystal clear" words not meant
for mixed company).  An open hydrant

on Broad St. sticks it
to the Company in daylight but
company makes night adjustments

and it comes back to you, the
consumer.  The stickers, the wet
ones, were the sons of consumers

& so, probably, was I.  This
was later.  It was
the water part again.
