radio waterfall

i promised you too many clouds 
& now i do not have enough to last this week.
do you remember parking on the side of the wooded road 
& asked the trees for directions? 
they said, "come here" & i told you 
i wasn't ready to become brush. inside the waterfall 
a voice is always talking & saying i need to move on. 
it's inside the waterfall so i can't just reach 
& shut it off. deluge. wound. 
the waterfall is a girlfriend & a hitchhiker
& a god. often you speak to me when you're no where at all 
just to say something like "do it for me."
