Excerpt from “Water”

The same water circulates
Saliva, an ice crystal,
Flacking oil, washing mud
An olive leaf, a raptor’s blood,
Shape-shifting earth’s
Salt oceans and sweet tea.
Being mostly water
I drink a tall cool glass
My roots are veins
River pathways
To my finger tips
The corners of the eyes
And sweaty folds
Where desire is produced
As riverettes.

Water is the part of an on-going research project exploring The Grand River watershed.
