Whatever / Soren James

POETRY

Photography by Roman Rivera

I can’t explain what
happened this morning –
     I don’t have a simile.

But I could look one up,
     and relay it to you.

Or maybe you could look one up.
Or we could acknowledge
that language isn’t everything,
and enjoy whatever happened this morning.

Roman Rivera is a wildlife photographer based in Boulder, Colorado. He admits that he hasn’t photographed much wildlife recently, but he’ll settle for autumn colors and pale skies
