I wanna be moved 
the way continents are moved
dragging gravity behind
remaking the shape of the earth

I want what fuels mountains
diving into valleys
scraping along a divide
and shearing off oceans

give me streams to drink from
and float down, give me
the thick delta mud, deposits
of the land washed away

I wanna be the landscape
stretching far away
and a horizon on either end
chasing the opposite side of the world

this is really good. (very in-depth commentary, yes, i realize.)

that was by-far the most romantic take on geomorphology I ever heard!
