Micro Memoir – Thoughts on the Hudson River Valley Aqueduct

blue stone quarry 

morning 

thirty-seven 

on the icy gravel dike

these glacial acid lakes

upstate, pure

where fish die

lacking green

 

dusty white catskill

mountains 

one bay window sunset

tunnel to December

 

walking backwards

rubbing two mitten shells

between blue palms

fading to parking lot

 

four thirty

washing up the rese-

voir enclave

foamy rainbow

 

remnants 

 

chlorinated streaks

sky-lining volcanic

river valley

turning hell-fire gold

 

falcon circling

purple-grey cloud now

speckled escarpment

facing wind

 

chilly legs

pressing accelerator

away from bank

toward highway

 

clothes tousled

over and over

colors surfacing

by the rowboat w/o a permit

 

Micro Plastic pools

for bathing suit divers

twenty-twenty sailors

becoming painters

 

in twenty-twenty one
