there is a river that runs far underground that has never seen the light of day
fed by one underground aquifer to travel through a honeycomb of caverns and spill into another
pale creatures uncatalogued by ever inquisitive scientists live and die in this unlit land
it is mindless in its flow in the molecular need to establish even pressure in unkempt devotion
today was much like any other
until it most certainly
and the water found itself flowing through a new crack in the bedrock towards locations unknown
not to the river of course
it is not sentient.
but how neat
would that be?
