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.
