Water data is all colors
lecturing on repeat interrupted by silent contributions
it swings in highs and lows, blown by the
shifting hue of smokey sunsets on purple mountains
majestic along the x-axis of chaos.

Water data is all genders, exhausted by trying
to synthesize heterogeneous variables into a box
that does not yet exist
to hold the size of innovation we need now.

Water data is all discplines, escaping the corner
of language, behavior and standards;
it pulses like a community protecting
what we drink, serve our families, and share with friends.

Water data, black hole of massive minutia
searching for the glimmer that will spark
the Age of Aquarius to control the fires,
when the headscarf to beard ratio is m=1.
and where Y = scientific progress; X = participation, and the intercept=0.
