TWO RIVERS

.

.

 The Neches

is full of snakes.

Does not follow the straight path.

Staggers in the dark like a drunk man

remembering the mole behind his mother’s ear.

 

 The Chama

I heard the Chama lying in her bed

singing about our Lord come walking up the water

come leaping from stone to stone like a young ram

white horns curling by his ears.

Come freeing all rivers damned to electricity

come healing all broken arms of water

with his horns   with his horns!
