Let the record show

Let the record show:

Flowing waters almost always

Climb uphill.


This ‘retreat’

Is no small matter;

Walls and pillars have formed,


Architecture water

Could never have;

An unrecognisable animal.


It’s aggression

Pull fish away

From the lonely sea shells.


Standing at full height,

The sun gave it

Colourful, ever-changing tattoos:


Bright light blinding

Small passersby

With soothing pain.
