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 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.

Ghosts ask “Does it trouble you that

you haven’t done more with this marvelous

life God gave you?”  “No,” I reply.

“And it doesn’t trouble me about all

the sadness and loss God gave me.”
