Navy Boot Camp


Our
black boots
hold ice cube
toes,
with us looking straight
ahead.
Lake Michigan pisses
snow on our dry,
red fingers.
Wind whips our
snotty noses.
Waiting in ranks for Frost
to bite.

    Aye! Sounds like Pirate Boot camp, except you might end up inside Lake Michigan.
    You got a unique style, I will say that. (Report) Reply

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
