Captains

Ringing, freshly reminiscent,
wound through splotches,
glistered restless,
burbled tumbled, gushed
defenseless;
tributaries flash persistent,
rolling past when
uninvited,
speckled, shaded,
verdant, calling
time’s reflection,
melted, thawing;
present-tense now
violated.

Rising rivers briskly
flowing,
sound, sensations
finding focus;
symphonies of
watered opus,
dams collapsing, warnings
groping,
run aground or
drowning happens…
reveries have reached
their limit,
closing recollection’s
spigot;
memories
require captains.
