I will leave my thinking be. I do not see it as it is,

a meaning of. You do not speak to me, it is how I

feel. I muddy the river, close the dam and

dry up. The long valley, a dug-out channel, flat cliffs,

the salmon ladder. I leave it quiet and without the constant

roar, the water masses, without motion.
