Description: 

To Water You (Labor’s Drawer Is Empty) is about wanting nothing that's old. It looks like a mask: the mouth in the bucket, and it has no way of getting full.

To Water You (Labor’s Drawer Is Empty) is about wanting nothing that's old. It looks like a mask: the mouth in the bucket, and it has no way of getting full. Often we don't use our mother's and father's tools, and we're empty all the time." —Lonnie Holley
