As the title states, I'm trying to find the title and author of a short story of a small group of people who are rivers trying to get to the ocean. It's not a long story, perhaps a few pages long. The characters are described as people but having powers related to that of rivers, like being able to flow through soil and such and summon waves/tsunamis that presumably are made up of themselves (since they're made of water). It's narrated by a female river person. The way the author describes the members also relate to rivers, such as describing a child among them as a small river born off of the fork of a bigger river, and whose mother dried up because of man's use of it. Most strikingly, one of the members is referred to using neopronouns, I believe Spivak pronouns (ey, em, eir). I believe their main goal was to get to the ocean, since the world is dried like a desert. Along their journey, they're being pursued by a hostile group of men who seek to enslave these river people to use as sources of energy (I think running a waterwheel or the like). They meet a group of human people who, I can't remember how, get into a conflict with the protagonists.
The main character/narrator is shot and leaks of water and "dies", being absorbed by her companions. She ends the story seeing through their perspectives.
