The Rivers I Have Hidden From The Sea / 2011

The River Before Me

To ford the river before me
I must consider
the boy who comes after me

His eyes wide, reflecting the great Western Expansion

His features betraying an amalgam of Old World relatives

- Swedes, Germans, Irish, Austrians, Russians, Scots, Brits -

All of whom forded an ocean broad, upon sail and upon steam

Upon the dreams emanating from the headwaters of imagination

A stream of consciousness
I must consider
With this river before me
