angst cycle (iii) — [и]

wtf
santa claus
being towed
by a single reindeer

or is it
a water bourn
wind surfer
turning on a pond
only slightly
bigger

far below saint nicholas
or long around
the ringworld

is an estuary
a long slow moving river
trailing banks
into what must be
a gentle sea

and some vandal
has chalked
an aircraft line
across the lot
