Thirst

by Paulann Petersen

From Canary February/March 2009

Your eyes must stay open
to the color of flowers.
Wherever their bright flash
catches your gaze, water flows.

You see rain
days after it stopped raining.
In your breath, you taste
the river running underground.


from A Bride of Narrow Escape, Cloudbank Books 2006
