FISH ROCK

Sweet water rises here
from forgotten depths—
Sierra snowmelt streaming
granite cracks under pressure,

underground waterways
clogged with huge trout.
A near escape as the earth
cooled to mark the place.

Words leak out, collect
on paper, fill a trough
open to native myths
locked in rock.
