ghost River

the river in the rain
(a ghost floats over
the bouncing) it's grey
and green and shiny
(everyone who's ever
died) it will be
night when the day
ends (so it is said)
there are fish down
there - hidden, cold
and happy (everyone
who ever lived) the
little rocks at the
bottom shift in the
weeds (where are they?)
