He looks up and dislocates a gazing bird, now

Some fairness, a sickening gauze falls down

Suggesting he really did miss the haze, the rocks,

The sooty terns that winterly nested;

Folded in the battered face.

„Go back to the sea”, they say.

„Go find the waders, their

Cotton sweaters thick with weeds

And lipid slips, trips old oars…”



„Draw the blinds and blow your brains, kid,

Do it, like you did back in ’04”
