Bottled water is one of the surrealist absurdities of our time.  It is tap water filtered and stuck in bottles, not some primal, pure spring water.  If you get a Britta filter, you can just refill any water bottle and carry it around with you for no cost, and it will be the same thing.  Fortunately Maine water is already good and pretty cold even in summer, but I use the filter anyway because it is noticeably finer.

Diana, everyone here carries about bottled water, poets and non-poets alike.

Kate, I'm guessing that none many of the people you mention were writing poems. Diana










 







If you look around at the people walking, driving their cars, in the shops, you will notice that many of them carry bottles of water.  What is ths obsession with water?  The ocean is not far away and the Bay is right there and canals filled with water dot the landscape.  Water surrounds these people.  It is everywhere, and yet, they still carry around their little bottles of water.  I wonder why?







To drink.  It's a Florida summer, with temps in the 90's and the humidity soaring.







Indeed, sometimes water is just water.
