Calm waters promise nothing

I’ve known these winds

these shifting sounds.


The way they flow with tipping toes

then run towards hurricanes,

then meet the calm river;

Until the stagnant reflection shows itself

a ripple of everything undone


The epilogue

runs slow on its vowels,

escaping consonants

to drag on slower,

to maybe pretend, for a while,

that the stagnant waters

don’t show us flatlines,

but a glimmering peace.


The sun shines against the current

as I gather as much hope

with a cup-hold of prayed imagination.


As soon as time continues,

the river drags on painfully slow.


I’ve walked down this route,

but I just don’t want to move.
