Tell Me

– Matt Daly

Audio Poem

Tell me how you speak of yourself
and I will tell you how I speak
of myself and soon our tellings
will become braids in the same river
and soon we will see the red backs
of the kokanee running strong
up the currents of our tellings
and together we will at last
be silent while we watch them
push against that clear pressure
that longs to mingle everything
we say with the vast sea.
