at the river stands a woman,
holding for a lover
holding for a child
in want of water
in want of thought, a teething reed
who knows the water?
who knows the constant? flow of need...
a homeless man cold, his stench - moves
as a boy with no father,
as a man with no mother
in need of water
in need of thought, a teething seed
who holds the river?
who holds the water? of constant feed...
a child holds the river, the constant still
the child knowing mother
the child knowing father
their search of water
their search of creed, a need to fill
let flow the river!
let flow the water! the child willed...
