meandering

rivers don’t look back
they only move forward

its meandering is a mere hesitation
but the hesitation is brief

the cut bank builds momentum and picks up speed
and throws the baggage at the point bar

a river’s meandering is but a necessary hesitation
shaking off the dirt and what slows it down

rivers don’t look back
they only move forward
