nahatlatch bachelor rafter

Cold water takes breath away
the roar is audible and palpable
clench paddles and teeth
as we come upon a crest
we find our way around it
the fall is more than the climb
this time, spared
save for those who have dived
into the cold, emergency water
Trees and walls of rock
pass by the raft
Rocks pass beneath
The stories will follow
The water continues
we continue
All of us
on and on
