4. KAPPA

Hey there riverchild, have you forgiven your monsters
yet? The trickster bits that sit by banks, ready to wrestle.
Slick with carniverous mischief. Feed her a cucumber
or take her to the horse stall—make her apologise in writing
if you must. Or just remember that we’ve all drowned
cows when we’re lonely, just remember that we’re both
talking in all carps this time. Salamander and koi trickle
between our fingers, so pluck a kimono from the water
                                         & try to make yourself heard.
