Juxtaposed

You paddle

               Amongst 

       Slender blades

Of sledge

And thickened stems

Of cattails–

               That bend in wind currents

And gyrate slowly under the song

Sung by churned waters–

In silt mixed murkiness.

 

Just

A position

           In the stream

           In the air

And one foot

           Then the other

On land.
