HOG CREEK



sliver of liquid chrome flow
cutting through the lushed pasturing
that showers fatten with late fall growth

an oak feeds its roots into the sandbank
common vine runs up its trunk

the flow is steady, deliberate
like a busted vein of raingather

—it eddies over your chucked first beer
to where childhood runs dry—

a young boar of its name ochers the green
thankful for this quiet hour
soughing in cheatgrass
