Sestina Ahoy!


When I was a high school student
sentenced to two years durance vile
at Saint Ignatius

the author I read most at the time
aside from the assigned reading
was an Anglo-Polish seaman

One tends to adopt the viewpoint
of a more seasoned voice
in a profession much admired

He was born Teodor Josef Konrad
Korzeniowski, son of a nobleman,
Joseph Conrad is noted

for his deep moral consciousness
and his narrative technique -
a writer and a merchant seaman
I thought to emulate him!

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;
