The River


Stainforth River Irwell

The River

dead slag sinks
joins scraps
sinks deeper
into infinite coma
stupidly waits
for hibernators
first spring drink

river’s quit trying to become sky
river’s gonna try to reach the sea

darkness: prefered
summer: too long
storms: relentless

river’s quit trying to become sky
river’s gonna try to reach sea

Geese At River Tanka

children plucking grass
gathering flowers for mom
cease at sudden honks
to follow a pair of geese
waddeling riverside
