Hudson

lake
…in the middle of the river
with salt water splashing
and the current pulling us
towards the farthest shore
we can experience
everything decent about life
even with the harsh sun
breathing down on our fresh faces
and sticky sweat beads dripping
down the vertebrae
reacting to the muscles
working overtime
we can comprehend the truth
about the entire universe
in a single afternoon
we can restore faith in ourselves
and calmly pontificate
about planets aligning impeccably
in a continual orbit
conspiring to deliver us
from and to our destinies
with only a paddle in our grip
and a partner to row us away
from the rocks and debris
we can sense the hidden pulse
of the amazing human spirit
right here…
