Because You Said You Were a River

I think of you
 

when I sit on the banks of rivers
 
and throw sticks
 

and large leaves (sometimes
 

small branches) into their currents
 
this isn’t a metaphor…
 

I don’t see you as a river or anything
 

you’re not a current and I’m not a twig
 

or vice versa
 
sometimes I just think of you, is all.
