River Day

Our four fishing poles lean over
and listen as a cruiser, like a fat
white fiberglass duck chugs upriver

In between, the wake waves
remember for a while
then don’t

A house skeleton
crouches by the far bank
A kayak blends water with sky

Cormorants use the river
for an air cushion, heading downriver
for urgent appointments
