awakening : by Shaun O.
dark liquid continents slowly converge on the mouth of the great Mississippi river
like 15th century conquerors finding the coasts of the Americas,
exploitation and greed drifting ashore.
but 1492 was columbus, and oceans blue
2010 is black gold adorning life (in disguise) of the sea
and we've dressed them,
our brothers and sisters.
we've dressed them for the family portrait.
