the lakes

Poetry & Prose August 19, 2019

i, the lakes


reading the glass
if it isn’t i’m past
drowning the fields, i’ll settle

it’s got to be the farmers gone
we said it won’t be very long
we watered the plants
we gave it a chance
so what’s left to anticipate?

and it can’t be very long
no, it can’t be very long

if it’s on the water i can see it

we’re holding onto branches now
who’s giving second chances now?

i broke through the glass
i’m swimming too fast
i’ve got no way to regulate

above the water i can see it
