Meet Me There

THERE IS A RIVER | S.A. Griffin

there is a cheerful ignorance
a chance meeting and
luck like gold that cannot be
mined or
stolen

a common atom

a dance

and stars that trick the
water with their
certain
magic

do not wash your wars in it
take your holy rituals to the
precious fountains built by your
agencies of fear

press your
wine from the fallout
and drink your
bitter victory

for yes

there is a river
a giving river that will
sing you safely

a river of
light

final
fast
and
free

where you can
disrobe
and leave your casual sadness
walking sideways at the
shore

meet me there
whoever you are
and we will agree to
swim it
together


S.A. says: “many people are losing their jobs and wondering what they are going to do with their lives and families, these are unique and rough times; a reflection of the tremendous national and global flux that has been driving all. we’re taking direct hits too, nobody is really safe. however, the earth, and we too, shall abide. kindness matters.”

I couldn’t agree more.
