The Rich Wreck the Well
Dreamed by Jim Shaw between 1987 & Jan. 1995.
I'm looking at some parts of heaven and hell that might have something to do with a project a high school pal (who's now born-again) proposed of paintings of heaven and hell. This becomes part of the John Huston film of the Bible, but it seems to be a part based on Revelations. There is a foaming version of the New Age well that is a source for rivers in all directions. Intercut are shots of women being slathered with pea soup that seem superfluous to the plot.
This is one of the few explicitly political dreams among the 400+ in Jim's book--and a generation later, as American lifespans shorten for the fourth year in a row, it looks quite prophetic--the rich and spoiled really have managed to wreck an entire society's health. There is, of course, no pun hidden in that word "well".
