Feel one way and then another
I turn when they're away
Along the seas encroaching borders, long
Awake, I tread.
How can I not remember that which
Haunts this trampled trail?
The tracks iced over decades still reveal a shape familiar
Blind to weigh Each grain by blood, tulips
Tempt both ends.
Calm the shore, its
Cries ignored, forever lead my
Oars, its force the only guide.
On Death's boat I ride.
