out there somewhere is a river not yet named

a mountain slowly rising

no eyes upon it still, no sense knows of its being

a sand dune unseen simmering


deep in the green below

under the swaying blue

breathes a creature i don’t know

uncatalogued, not turned into a species

no not yet not yet


a river flows from your eyes

a mountain rises in your heart

sand shifts through your veins

something remains

never to be known

nor named


when i know do i really know

or lose you

when i name do i surely go

and erase you
