Rivers and Floods


I have memorized all your

rivers and floods

carved them onto the backs

of our maps

a journey out and forgotten

I know now!

we just lost our spot


Giving my last line to the


mangled, tangled pecking

five-hundred years

with my face flat in the riverbed

drawing an “X” with my tongue


I see myself in your tears

sucked up from a stranger

who drinks what is mine

taking gulps of me

pissing me out of the system
