Venka Greer stood on the shore
and the River that flowed by whispered to her:
Taste me and forget, swim in me and forget, drown in me
Venka Greer wanted to taste the river
swim in the water
drown in it
but she did not want to live.
she turned back from the shoreline
and walked through the darkness until she came to another River.
Taste me and remember, swim in me and remember, drown in me
this River sang to her.
Venka Greer considered the two Rivers.
She considered her life.
And between the two Rivers…
She died of thirst.
