The River: a poem in Impossible Archetype

A poem of mine called The River was published in the online journal Impossible Archetype. You can click on the link below or read it here. Impossible Archetype is a magazine for LGBT people.

The River

Water flows over the stepping stones
clearing away the mud left by my boots.

I watch the brown swirl on the clear flow
and hope my own hurt goes down the stream.

I offer up each memory as it bubbles out
while the beating heats up in my head

and my throat is dry. I cannot speak.
I am a child again finding my words.
