Frankenstein

Timothy Lake

We think the river a wild beast, amok, tilling a path in soil.

But it’s us—in another form, searching for a mate who can only be made in our own image.

 

We slow the stream, to a reservoir’s pulse, in hope to drink reflections—until the end of our days.

 

Yet, days are a slight of hand, manmade lakes, built, so we can sing to the photogenic current.

Stilled, captured in a portrait

Touched, retouched, retold

  2. I like the title which, for me (having read the book), ties into us as questionable creators manipulating nature and natural laws (here with water) with the end results not as good for us as we intended, though we probably can’t even see the damages because we are so far gone… Super thought-provoking, as usual.
