Not About This

It is not about the classic rivers
of mythology, not about Acheron,
river of woe with its lines of unemployed
holding their migraines in their hands.

Or Cocytus, river of lamentation
where the elderly have gone
to grieve their condition.

It cannot be this.

Not the river of fire,
the lava flowing from another volcanic shudder
into the homes of the living & the dead,
& into the stories of new generations.

For these are byproducts,

shining as they are-

It is not about the river of forgetfulness,
inviting as the night visits the tortured mind.
No, not this, or the waters of hate
& the butchered bodies stacked along shorelines
& the lost women trying to find their sons,

or the river of return,

not the red river of consolation
wound about the heart
& through the vineyards,
or how our loves came to be,
then left us again to ourselves.

It is not about the oldest & saddest river,
the river of time, with flashes of metallic film
sliding by, gathering momentum
& the sufaces of faces,
the faces of phantoms,
(I have seen myself among them.)

It cannot be about theology,
or if it is, it is the theology of celestial mechanics,
the giant narrative of everything,
the source of energy, (& its forms,)
crunching itself out through the heavens.

  314.     

Font Color='880000' A River Of My Death

blood rushing within
keeps my cold heart beating
keeps me living

Blood rushing out of me
Keeps the real pain at bay
Takes over all other thoughts
Gives me a focus
Gives me control

Blood upon the floor
Seeping towards the door
A river of past pain
A river of tears I’ve shed
A river of tears I’ve bleed
A river to die by

  315.     

On The Horizon

On the horizon
in the shadowy glade
a river murmurs softly
- its coolness on my feet
On humid summer evenings
the breeze flies away in endless flight
down the long dark river

On the horizon,
in the shadowy glade
a river softly mummers
-I sail away
down the long dark river
into the deep blue ocean
Where my thoughts sink into the abyss

  316.     

The River

Leading to the lasting sea
Is the river of life,
Eternal, never ending.

The river runs from the
Snow-capped peaks; where God Himself
Pours continuously, ceaseless.

Life winds, weaves its way around obstacles
Jutting out, breaking the tranquil yet
Ever-flowing surface of the river.

Midmorning arrives, rays of dazzling
Sunshine accent each wave, each ripple.
A thin, transparent haze lightly
Blankets the river.
