Calamity will never again get you
You are erudite and important
Bathing in the now infinite water
That spans more than the whole world

When the river ached at its banks
Born to be an ocean, it broke
A word was shouted as it spoke
And it span us like a carousel
all clung tight around its throat 
with our fingers tight as mesh wire
With our guts scrunched up like iron wool
Our nostrils and eyes were dry and chapped
Cracked and bleeding
