Apex Love

Dams stopped the river from reaching the delta.

The delta: Once the apex
in the life of a giant
Where brackish waters
Hosted uncountable species
and the tide receded
when told by the moon

Now it trickles
merely the host of a stream
where a mighty river
once flowed

But like your love
the river might come back
to me
Return salmon and starfish
algae and snake grass
cattails
Tourists

Dam removal
I damned removal!
Now I fully support
your return
