Red stuff, Black stuff, White stuff

~~What is your tap water like?

Do you have some kind of black shit growing out of the faucet?
The black stuff is rubbery, almost mushroom like. It looks like it
could be the crap that grows on the shower curtain. But I’ve
never seen it run rampant the way it does here at my place, or in this city…
The red stuff doesn’t grow into a mass but it does cover the immediate
area around the faucet base. In the shower it grows all over the place.
It looks like paprika was used to powder the sink and the
shower area…
The white stuff was a surprise… After dealing with the black stuff
and the red stuff for the longest, I didn’t know what to make of the white…
It’s strange… It grows in much the same way that the black stuff grows
but it isn’t smooth like the black… It’s more rigid and firm…

On top of all this, the tap water reeks of chlorine…
It’s nasty… It’s a nasty nasty thing…

I have well water, not city water. I don’t have any of that except some slight red stuff on one of our shower curtains. It appears on the curtain within two days of replacing it.

I have well water as well. Great stuff. Actually, half of a mile up the road is a lake that is actually UP the road. So the water table here is high. Ground water is just 11 feet below the surface…so we made our well 250 feet deep. If anyone knows about well recovery, we have 35 gallons a minute. And it is the BEST tasting, most clean and clear water I’ve ever tasted. I find water disgusting, but this stuff is just delicious. Mmm…water…

Anticay, where do you live to get this kind of stuff? I’ve never even heard of that kind of thing!

~~Well, it’s not like this in most of my state although
NYers that move here wish they had their water from back
home, so I’ve been told many times… I’ve met many who can’t
drink the water without adding lemon juice and sugar…

Still it smells like it has Clorox in it…

oooh, that’s just wrong!

Anticay, I don’t know if you meant it to be, but I thought that OP was hilarious!

That’s some great post-modern avant-garde free verse poetry you’ve made there!

It should be set to music. I’m thinking Minutemen. (Yes, I know they don’t exist anymore :()
