    Flow


    The river unstepped in twice

    voices from the past

    seep in call out

    and one

    cajoling whine

    typecast has pierced

    sleep's veil listened hard

    heard for confirmation

    All dead I guess

    and he deader

    the doornail

    of the rest

    The fall

    from

    a horse

    enrolled in

    Three Musketeers

    An unlikely end no less than

    Bastard Conqueror Guillaume's

    ruptured campaign

    Rooted return

    shriven.

    Not sure of the references, though I see William the Conqueror. Beautifully wrought - the sheer, structured music of it is captivating.

      After reading this a number of times I know even less than Grant reference-wise, and I still enjoyed the poem, the sentiments, the art of what was yes, music visible but invisible, with the cool construction and line breakage. I like the beginning for what seems like a look of self into itself? "All dead I guess" has a dry tone with humor behind it, to my ear. Enjoyed, thankya.

        ‘And he deader the doornail’ I thought didn’t flow like the rest. I enjoyed it overall.

          The shape of this poem is as attractive as it's 'flow'. Nicely done JT.
