                      after Yuan Hongdao

come close to the river
where east and west part

I catch your eye
but then I see you climb aboard

I’m not a singsong girl

I thank you for easting
my glance back

this river carries
quite a cargo

and some other fish
that bite


*from in conversation with the river
