Stream Thought

water drools
around teeth-like rocks,
on a slope
that seems the mouth
of a wolf,

but really
grass isn’t fur,
and daisies don’t participate
in hunts.

why would a stream
pretend to be fierce?
does it stalk cattails
or perhaps clouds,

their taunting fleece?

Chris Crittenden says that he is “a quirky hermit living in the easternmost town in Maine, just a few miles from the Canadian border,” and that “the beautiful nature inspires me, but I hate the way that development threatens to gobble it up!”
