6: confluence

like lover’s arms wrapped around each other’s bodies
pulling from the vast continental watersheds
of eastern and western north america
the ohio and mississippi rivers come together
then flow next to each other for miles
a clear demarcation between one and the other
before finally merging together into one long flow
just as we too come together with a single kiss

(from a work in progress: “Arcana,” November 6, 2013)
