The river undone,

The river undone,

         the faraway
crossing the cold rush,
         the sweet, slick stones.

         Trees leaning as if content,
the sound
         of this much water, passing
and less, later

         in iced surrender.
How do the lies
         find the shallows, how
do the fish refuse the sky?
