Seepage provoked and overflow
as he tried to articulate boundaries
define a riverís current, depth to
surface ratio, massive arterial
dark unrelenting days and nights
of deep drifting channeled now
heavy hose of water moving ever
lengthening container, stretching
from mountains to open sea
his language incomplete, almost
babbling as it lamented the breach.
