Field Collecting on the Eel River
Why stones are watered,
and how the turning of the stones
changes the ways we enter the river.

Spending the day in the church basement, the old poem surfaces with the question, How are the children doing? I remember the poet remembering the Masai elders dreaming little ones back into night action where trouble gets solved in its proper place. The kids come out ok in the morning, he said. Kasserian Ingera. The children are well. Returned to myself, then, returned to myself.
