The Rivers I Have Hidden From The Sea / 2011

Faits Accomplis

rock broke away from the coast,
tossed in the teeth of gunmetal waves
- here, then there -
until I lost sight of it

the moment left time behind
and all that remained
was the stone-dead-silence
of billions of years
and their aeonian snapshots
of time at a stand-still

marching me all the same toward death,
with no malice, only another moment
awaiting recognition before it too is lost
to the grey, endless fluidity
of geological time,

nothing more profound in store
for similar, inevitable fates
