The Frozen Stream

A stream gently flows
from east to west
under a river that
is thundering along
from the south to
the northern estuary.

The stream is an ancient glacier
it moves very slowly.

The hot river surging above
all that pride and hubris never
touches its frozen heart

All he wants is a wild life
resulting in disasters
to be inscribed on a tombstone
so few details appear faintly
whispering now they are ready
for absolution in the waters.
