Another taste of Jim Harrison

This is the second half of River II, a poem from his latest collection of poems, Songs of Unreason.

“Once on our nighttime farm on a moonlit walk

the clouds pushed by a big western wind

became a school of whales swimming hard

across the cold heavans and I finally knew

that we walk the bottom of an ocean we call sky.”
