The Trouble Is In the Water

Photo by L. Kolp
~~~
Murky placebos spiral
‘round and ‘round
ripple through summer
a pulsating guise
of one-upmanship
keeping score
in waves of monomania
like a piranha
that feeds on money~
Schlitterbahn
Sea World
Galveston Island~
slurp, slurp
ka-ching!
Water
ahh.

wicked cool flow through this....Schlitterbahn...is just a cool word...sea world, def costs...unless you are a resident...we had season passes once...$45, not bad....but there is def money to be made...

Looks like you whirled through your writers malaise(I seem to remember seeing you say that this morning on facebook--- I could be dreaming.) I really like this prompt and may need to look into it. Your photo is magnificent.
