Sailing

From All @ Sea 2014 coming soon to Amazon 

 

Sea rough as hell

waves want to silence us

drag down deep to a watery land

where the octopus sleeps.

 

Out on the Estuary world war

sentinels stand like giant insects

scanning the sky empty now as

tankers roll by & dolphins jitter.

 

We’re lost in the wind falling from

land to sea & the sails batter me

tack and jive through morning high tide

& skip past sea cables.

 

The moon smirks down behind wisps

of dawn & sun sneaks out betwixt judder

of hull as we heel hard to wind water

pouring on deck breaking through

 

to drench us.
