Thirst | Meg Harris

for Laura

Would it help to know there is a Saturn moon
round as a giant cue ball which holds within it an ocean

the size of Lake Superior? Hike down the rocky hillside
to the brook which first cut this valley, remove your shoes

and socks and plunge your bare feet into the frigid water— 
this is the way of flow. Be quenched even as plumes
 
of ice leap into the darkness from the south pole of Enceladus.
