That Other Ship Forgot - Poem by James McLain

That Other Ship Forgot
That smokey 'Hole'
and fiery red
so hot
eye enraged
the blaze is seen through
silk and lace
for miles around
no man,
would she left, he get up
that channel
all have lofted sail
to die
upon each toothy rock
their skulls
bleached white
by salt and westward sun
each sprockets
hid beneath the waves
of foam
white sands of time tossed back.
