A canal ran through here once?


A hidden stream runs deep

through the soil under this town.

There is the river, of course

churning through its channelled

constricted structured way.

But there is another web

of hidden streams

a ream of unwritten rivulets

that oozes in silence

beneath the stones and roadways


(excerpt from the poem “Fay”)
