To a Friend Who Died in the Swamp

Rivers meet in my eyes for you.
Transfixed on the veiled Mound of the swamp, Lone Beholder of unsteady opera On rotten marble, You saw the reeds dancing To unknown winding plight, Smothering storms broken At your feet. Doors of the earth swung Into the dark footage of the waters As they took you in.
The river that meets
rivers
In my eyes for you
Is a lament for a nation.
