There was a We in weather. We
drifted river-water,

its texture at noon. At

such a strange hinge,
                      rarely accurate.
We miss the sounds.

According to meteorologists, weather
attains agency in the happening.

We listened from the end of the river.
Trees on the banks continue to panic.

Where were we at? At home.

There was a Her.
                      Now it’s unclear where
that refers to. Someone
will boat at that river

in different conditions.
                      Weather will happen.
