ferry tell.

The river

binds
itself

like a scarf
tight

around
the wooden

beams
speaking

their
way

down

through
her

gown,
& the ferry

tell
comes

undone,
out

in the open
waters.
The river

hems
the wooden

beams

under

her streams
& the ferry

tell
moves
its

rumor
open

scrapping
some paint

off
the wooden

beams
into her

streams
