(CONVERSATIONS STARTED NOT FINISHED)
The River or the Rock?
The river or the rock that turns it?
The wind or the seeds it scatters?
The black and white cows or the green field they interrupt?
The words on the page or their meaning?
the rock doesn’t try
to change the river
it hunkers down
in the thick mud
and lets the stream split around it.
