The Dam at Otter Creek



when all that's left to do
is reflect on what's been done
this is where sadness breaths
the sadness of everyone
just like when the guys built the
dam at otter creek and all the
water backed up
deep enough to dive
we took the dead man in sheets
to the river flanked by love
deep enough to dive
deep enough to dive
be here now
we took him there and three
in a stretcher made from trees
that had passed in the storm
leave the hearse behind
to leave the curse
be here now
