Mag 98 / Poem: A Reminder

The bent elbow
slows progression-
force builds
pushing the river
over and beyond  

the banks like claws
snag what is delivered
from upstream

when the anger
has burnt itself out
the raging water fading
to original dignity-
scattered on banks
remain the wrath

Michael A. Wells
