Dog River News

Suddenly dogs howled

and I knew there was such a thing as a breakthrough

the ice thawed, the stream coursed on

and when I looked across river, there was smoke in the willow grove

and wood fires among the trees in bud

I knew that people had come into the world to change everything

the location of the trees will change for their being here

the very course of the river will be different

Still in spring the ice floats downstream

the water is high, the earth wet with the snow of months past

and the river has no choice but to make its way onward

stone blue like it shall be
