Packed.

Pack horsed

with national pride

venturing into a vast empty region

sub zero kingdom of frozen sea

 

to valiantly stubbornly plant the first flag

even prepared

to be sacrificed to the histories of great losses

forever remembered aftermaths of failure

 

a chilling memory never disappearing

unlike you

over blank horizons.

 

Howling snow storms

Oaring the boat along gently.

Sat in the stern

my wife.

She tucks into a poetry book.

 

Off to my left,the huge iconic chalky face

with green hair,overlooks our insignificent presence.

 

Below their roof of these waters

swim many varieties of marine life

with many varieties of names

that many varieties of humans

have given them

Safe? marooned?

I have this uncertainty

whether or not

to drown

in the sea

of your love.

 

My heart

will not swim

in doubt

of what

lies beneath

its surface.

 

Leave me

like this

for now

on this

of indescision.

 

Here

I must bide

until the truth rises

my patience knows no bounds,my patience never loses,the needs of my soul won't allow it to.
