Featureless Sculpture

Have you sat on the rock
next to the river
looking out onto the lake
the open water at the river mouth
is alive
the muskrat has places to go
ducks bob and slip under the water
joshing each other, vocalists
it's not a romantic instinct
to see the cacophony 
as a piece of wrought art
an articulation
of the oneness
of the several
and the featurelessness 
of the world
(the impossibility
of a snapshot).
