Letters to Minnehaha Creek: Prelude by Victoria Peterson-Hilleque

I am coming to you now.

When Dorothy was alive, I did not


think of you as much more

than the scenery


framing our friendship. She

noticed when you were low


or high or altered.

Do you save anything?


Do you keep some

of the world in your watery


heart? Do you remember her?
