in praise of the river that has flooded its birthplace.

dark bruises of waves / turn / like lathes

Poetry by Brandon Thomas DiSabatino

dark bruises of waves
like lathes
            in the water
            i am in love
            w/ this river, eating
            away at its own banks
knowing     the part of the earth
            it is bound to                                                  
must break.
