Rivers

I could hear their voices long before I knew what they meant (Wrong.)
boiling glue in corridors, goose feathers disinterred from snow
somehow still as white as butter. Apart from this, everything
opened like the prospect of a good mood, fish eggs easy
in the dark inundation. The wide berth is given. But is it?

No, No, No, No, No.
