songs from the quivering morning

atoms in the riverbed stones

move minisculely,

they are modest mice

making vibrations of small


come and see,

come and see whisper

more and more microbials

by the minute.

an unseen audience

above the high water mark gathers

to feel the stones miniscule


soon the fungi and the single celled

friends commence in a weak song

their melodies a lament, a warning,

for they emit a song from the quivering morning

and the scene they inhibit

becomes intoxicated with the knowing

that a certain

turpitude of dawn

spills over them in a new way
