River report Dec. 30th



Can’t stop writing

Can’t stop


Feverish scribbling

Cold-Sweat typing

Words and thoughts pour like Moses’ flood

Overwhelming and unstoppable

Can’t keep up, carried away

Flood of letters and words

Swirling, dragging me down

Each day passes in a frenzy of trip reports, blogs, stories and tales

Ideas clamoring for attention, like children

Shrieking to be born

Clawed and pugilistic

Infused with a fighting temper

And a refusal

To let their father ignore them.
