The Matrimonial

Soft flows of ice down the Canadian mountains.

An eagle seeks his nest after lifting up from the land with a groundhog having already fled from its body.

The shards of water-ice will flush down into the lakes and women die, the secret of that death how it occurred never told.

The argument of floods with glacial landslides distant but not totally far from their home.

The talons of the eagle marry themselves to twists of fate and, women die and are lifted away from their bodies before truths can be discerned.
