I am a medley of waterfalls,
their loud shush.

I am a forgotten porch dog,
not the mutt,
but his memories.

I am hidden in a secret
crease, a penny
pressed down under.

I am a bullet’s hole
singing a wound song
into blood.

I am grief
rising between widows’

I am rain
and the scent
of rain.

I am the fisherman’s
surprise and the marlin
who hooks back.

I am the thrust
that left lovers
spent, I am the

Oh God!
of their apex.
