To write on water,

in the native idiom, means

a favor or a debt whose repayment
has been promised in the fluid,

unforeseeable future: today’s
material need secured through

mixed currency— one part faith
and the other desperation;

or some other bind only a god
might fathom, an interest

of stringent terms exceeding
the single instance of exchange.
