the nowhere machine strikes gold


a mask or so ago

we felt the river flow

an endless rippling wave

eternal moments saved

within its ceaseless motion

the river meets the ocean

absorbed in all its glory

it learns another story

of larger issues when

the flowing never ends

a cycle set for spinning

eternally and winning

loud and rich and bold

producing newfound gold

a nudge a mighty mod

of prayer offered to God

(listen. when the answer

comes let's be ready

to write down exactly

what we hear...)
