Driving to a Lacrosse Tournament, So Here's a Prose Poem



Spell

Some fish for words from shore while others, lacking in such contemplative tact, like to go wading in up to their chins through a torrent of bone-freezing diamond, knife raised, to freeze-frame incarnadine and then bid it as with hermetic wand flow on again, ferociously, transparently, name writ in river.

I'm going to be completely honest with you- I had to look up "incarnadine" and "hermetic" and I still don't truly understand.
"Hermetic" has two completely different definitions. Did you know that?
Wait. I just read it again. (Third time.) I hope I'm the second kind of writer but I doubt I am.
