Two-Hearted River

I flow today like this two-hearted river.

My energies come from two different places

in my past that should have passed,

but they have pooled around me today.

I’m trying to empty them. Dissipation. Loss.


The most famous Two Hearted River runs through Michigan and the branches drain into Lake Superior.  That’s not my two-hearted river.


Four Percent

We live in the 4% of matter.

My hand, this house, trees, Earth, stars

moving blindly amidst so much dark matter,

dark energy and dark inertia – all unknown.

“I will be what I will be.”
