By the river

I tell X that he’s misunderstood me, he’s misunderstood everything! That blank look you give me… I say something to you, I say, my words are lost in the wind, I look around and I’m standing by a river. The air’s misty. I misunderstood you completely, how could I have thought you were listening to me? The bank dries up, stretches out beyond the horizon, the earth is scorched, the earth cracks and where are you? Still there with that dead look in your eye.
