The skin of the river is thin
It has reflection
Sheer volume to make it bold enough
To cut canyons
Change landscapes
Manufacture power

My skin is thick
It has layers
Can burn and peel
Break and bleed
It covers the river of life
That flows within me
Keeps it whole

We are so different
Yet I can see myself in it
Hear its riversong
