An Extraordinary Life

Flying home
Your life tricked open
My waiting wound
To let the salty ocean in…

To free its swollen grief

I hold it in
Then breathe it
Out
To climb like night’s first star
And wait on it
With impish eyes
While ships sail to its breach

Your song is shot like pirates eyes
Whisked on sea slung breezes
It’s brazen soul
Its hoodlum gait
Cooing for its mate

An Extraordinary Life
