The Secret of Rivers

Written by John Poch

Read by Kimberly Grey

Standing in this current, trying
to thread a 4X tippet through the eye
of this Woven Stone I’ve chosen over
a Princess, missing and missing
the eye, sweating, finally through,
and you, tonight,
the secret of rivers,
that long neck of yours panting
in the lamplight coming at that high,
long angle from the hallway to the dark
where I cast a shadow on you
and you don’t know it.
