WATER II

(before and after the flood)
Babbling of fools for an incredulous
state of mind, imagination sprung loose
no historical precedents, impossibility
romanticized until the rains fell
rivers overflowed, winds toppled shelters
cold waters chilled life, exhausted
in the flow, dumbfounded in profited death.
