The Temporal Utility of Banks

.
along the river
its banks are set.
they keep the river
in the river.
being in the river
the river’s in its being,
within its banks, whole.
astatic, a river flows unbound

a falling river free
within its banks grows
unbound, ecstatic

this falling river flows
until, without bounds, at sea
this river goes
