River bank

ensconced


An old

man


Mind

encapsulated


In


water flow


Time


mantra...


Two

River Rats


Defiantly


Dealing

dope...


An eight

year old

boy


Determinedly


Skips

stones...


His parents

huddling


Nervously


On

a blanket...


A blonde

girl


With

naked


(near

perfect)


Breasts


Radiates


Under

the Sun...


The local

guitar

player


(actually

bootlegging)


Jumbles

chords


Dexterously.


The old

man


Stretches

his stiff

frame


Leans

his back


Against


A tree


and


Sleeps:-


His dreams


Visibly

unsettling


In


The used


To be.
