Wednesday’s A Moment

The water is there
Kinetic
Edges held static
By concrete and sand

The dam is loud
But I cannot hear it
From where I kneel
On pebbled land

There’s a city under there
Drowned
Doorjambs empty
Of daily homecomings

I could walk
The entire circumference
And still feel a stranger
To its clouded feelings

And yet be comforted
By its ever-presence
The water is there
Kinetic
