4 Kinds of Water

Poems by Suzanne Frischkorn

It's the sound waves make on stone I notice, not the beauty of foam.
     The red slide looks new when it's wet
and rain gives the broken swing a reason.

Sea glass reflects in sand but water holds truth.
     When the levee breaks, open your doors and windows.

Silt and riverbed never lieóMarcie was saved
    by a black boy
and we still don't know his name.

In Mexico the sea of Cortez holds secrets.
    He came with God in his left hand and killed with his right.
