The God Of Sea Disasters - Poem by Patti Masterman

I'm shipwrecked wood and plaster,
Wormy statues of maritime disaster,
Chained-shut gates forever after,
Molded louvers closely cloistered.

Burnt out candles on a font,
Roundhouse windows suavely taunt,
Corridors of darkness haunt
Stairs going nowhere- as is his wont.
