Day Drip

The Tower of Babel
6 miles and more runs its hideous shadow

That’s why there’s
babble tongue in river rush
silence in day fade

Why water walkers double in reflection

This wind in trees
sounds like river running
rain falling

There’s purr, there’s child laugh
there’s water run and train moan

This water falls from the river
liquid running
licking lips, laps, lumbars, Lotharios

So easy to sleep when it rains

– Smith, 9.17.2016
