state highway 4
mangawhero river

this road
lifts you up to
the sky drifting
apart in sunset
cloud
then
sails you down
in armfuls of
curves to
the stone-cracked
river below,
the roar
of night
coming
in its
waters

    Take a bow for those last lines – the roar of night coming into its waters.
    Lovely.
