Near To Marconi (At Sully Island) - Poem by Jean Bernard Parr

I wish you could be
my cheerleader
when I push my boat
into this frisky sea
to see your dot on the shore
your thoughts dashing across
this hackled, cat-fur water

A radio I would become
crackle, and down my mast
a simple message
and if lucky, a crystal look
not see, but know your face
framed with a sharp cut
arms around knees
compact and neat
like a bright diode
with your gaze aimed
at another country
and if lucky, get me
some courage, amplified
just enough to win the race
just enough to win
just enough

Poet's Notes about The Poem

in movies the girl watches her man do things heroically. In real life you are on your own buddy, they are at home manicuring the poodle
