This is the start of our greed, the need to pierce our thirst. If our graven idol be carved, then let our knives carve deeply without hitting bone.

From our obsession with golf greens and swimming pools emanates full immersion; our bodies crown at the surface chokered in dregs from the aqueduct floor.
