Fizz


The Catalina Flying Boats
Swing low
Catching the sou‘easter
On a right bank
They talk to three fishermen
Doubt in their chins
As they contemplate launching
The sea starting to fizz
A backwash wave
Catches the top of an 8 footer
Iridescent and turquoise
Toffee over head
Heaven on a plate

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
