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.

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.”
