elijah

    when my mother

asked my brother

    other ways to bother water

                        

    we together bashed the (weather) water         with

 

our        water (weather)-beaten hands a-clapping

                    

slapping brethren under (heaven) water

    by the river slowly raging like an infant

crying softly as a mother without

 

    water (weather) weighing softly for our father

    falling in a raging river laughing

    under water.
