from by dogwood



water’s tripping down the falls
swell swell river, swell up my mind
I read your poetry over time
your heart is wandering
so your art is fine

in the shoal waters of my weary days
I counted the waves to where you lay
I watched the sparrows on the river play
It’s a sure a thing as in the winds they sway

I feel it all
I see it all

the things you see & you don’t tell
the things you see, you forget

I was a riverwild,
I was a bastard child

blood streaming down the falls
undertaker, won’t you pray for her a little
she chases waters til they fall
it’s as sure a thing as from the past he calls

down to the sea all misty from her grave
I bathe in your arms til my hands begin to bend
and I grow older, wiser
from the ebb & flow
I’m older, wiser than you’ll ever know
