1 The constraints: 1) No more than
one hour. 2) No more than 20 lines.
The result ? Genius or Not.

River runs into itself, washes into land
- slack undertow -
sand, grass, asphalt, bricks.
Doctored photographs, signatures, CGI on the streets:
oil portraits smudged.
Howling wind.
Sunrays like rain aslant through clouds endlessly hovering.
Tiny light creeps out of night -
a thief loitering all day, shadowing.
Dusk falls silent.
Blinds won't keep beams from screens.
Murmuring, drinking, muffled sex, toilet rests.
Come the dawn the pattering of feet, watches being set.
Off out on the train, the bus, the tram -
a lift breaks down.
Management's at fault.
Battle lines being drawn - membranous, permeable -
a drone of complaints dampening critical patch.
Celebrations aborted, desire doused.
The revolution botched.

Politics, Water, revolution, Time
