Vessels



VESSELS


Uncontained is the river
upon whose back
dead leaves float
onward to the sea.

Irreversible are words
spoken in anger or haste,
they cling to our memories
like fog to a morning fisherman.

Untenable is melancholy
after empty conversations
about routines
and other superficial conversations.

Immovable are moments
when love consumes two souls
leaving one life
to be shared among them.
