the lake

the trees
watch
slyly and in
silence
as the oars shake
off
the clinging
lake.
the ritual sound of
blows, wood against
water,
older than the
trees,
resurrects an ancient
Viking
who, voiceless,
lies
beneath.
the moon
cries from impossible
depths,
drowning in quiet
throes,
its gesticulations
invisible and
still,
save for the black lake’s
light
swell.
this is the silent
prancing of the
dead, mawkish
and
false.
nothing real lives
here; only
phantoms.

now I, who have
betrayed my
betrayer,
must
join them

in the

cold

crowded

lake.
