October 16, 1990

at the age of 12
1 used to go to the country
set up an easel
a board with watercolor paper
then paint a tree by the river
now the river is poisoned with chemicals
the tree destroyed
behind cement walls
large glass panels
in the now landscape
thousands upon thousands sit in front of IBMs & Macs
on the walls calendars & framed pictures with waterfalls
wooded virginal forests & perhaps a tree by the river
