Gone (as you are) when the currents push you straight into that hairpin turn where slammed sideways around the bend two fallen mammoth tree trunks, stripped & bleached, lie along each bank, branches forcing rushing water into a narrow channel--brake & cut thru surging waves, avoid the crash that'd toss you into the roar the frigid waters, your craft swamped or adrift in wild plunging currents-- somehow you're through, the river widens out, calm, & you can sit back as morning sun fills forest & swamp.
