DARK SHIP
(3/10/07)


we set sail
by the void
of a new moon
dark water
dark sky
dark us
blending
into a boundless
blackness
of totality

our sails
captured
the gloomy intent
filling them
to capacity
driving our vessel
forcibly to the East
where our nemesis
crept quietly
with passions
numbed

without stars
to guide us
we trusted
the wind
a helm
of apathy
easily surrendering
our charted course
to the capricious
preternatural
guiding gusts

we awaited
Destiny
to claim us
on the horizon
rising like a dragon
from the depths
of our petty
delusions

or
more simply
the sun
of another
day
