PLUR x Hydration <3

We’re all friends, and have a collective jump that shakes the tarmac beneath us,

girls on shoulders, kandi traded along sweaty wrists

as the bass permeates our skin, we feel it in our bones –

a wave of loud cheers erupts from stage to stage,

dozens of countries’ flags on display,

makeshift kandi masks donned as hundreds of shufflers scrape the floor with their sneakers,

a pounding of sound calls you from every direction.

Wavy, euphoric vibes, and dilated eyes all around

About 10 giant bananas are running around together

But the most beautiful thing are the water bottles being passed around.

Smiles, glistening bodies of all shapes, sizes, genders, colors, 100,000 faces

And when one falls, there are 10 to catch them,

We check in with our crew and pass the water bottles around –

We all vibe out, some like to smoke, and some won’t,

Some like to jump and scream, and some roll, and some don’t,

but everyone passes the water bottles around.

Some shuffle, some head bang at the front, some crowd surf,

some just sit back and kick back toward the back,

some throw up the peace sign and the duck face,

some are on the ‘gram, while their favorite DJ goes HAM,

taking snaps and videos and selfies with selfie sticks-

Some even start passionately kissing, or give sweaty, glitter-filled hugs

and rave hands, glow sticks, LED gloves dancing in the air,

some make new friends, and some stick to their tribe,

some are wearing next to nothing, some are dressed like batman;

and some are so lost in the music that they’re in their own zone…

and they’re all passing the water bottles around. – RSM

gimme a skyline and some water

‘Isn’t that all we need, some tall steel monuments with human honeycombs inside and a nice lil polluted patch/ocean of non-potable water?’

‘Yes,’ I answer myself, ‘but only if there’s a half-decent transit system, and the basketball team has to suck.’

‘DEAL!!’ I exclaimed, out loud. Everyone else in line at Staples looked very confused.

I put a lot more thought into so many more similarities before that next era in our lives, of the cities that I decided would be the past and future, of me.

But at the end of the day, all I need is a skyline and some water. That’s what makes me happy, location wise most def.

After doing extensive research on the world*, it looks like most fellow humans of mine would agree. Nature, nurture, whatever it may be, cities are the place to be in the 21st century, people want all the urban, without the decay, and rural farms and towns are seen as out of date.

You may not relate, and if you’re not alone, but name a city that’s landlocked, no river, pond, ocean, bay, no lake to blame bad weather on, and for each one I’ll show you a hundred more that are. Or like, seven. Whatever. I’m sure you get it by now.

Just gimme a skyline and some water, and a black coffee to go. No sugar.-RSM
