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.
