Rookie (9/19/1963)

SUN LIGHT HITS THE WATER.....


SLACK tides, smooth edges,
metal eyelets, drifting
in the cold snow.
MAN overboard,
man overboard,
CLIFFS and rocks, pitch
and plunge, a drum getting
louder, as you stagger off.
MAN overboard,
man overboard,
DEPTHS and weights,
ghost and saints.
a child waiting for
his father to love
him, as his son.
MAN overboard,
man overboard.
