“ Men Of The Sea ” ~ indurate beings ~


On steel hull ships

Live indurate men,

Of rusty hearts

And tempers short,

Whose tired grunts

Speak fitful streams

Of words bone thin…


With guarded eyes  

And gnarled limbs

They navigate,

The lonely seas

In life replete

With boding myths,

And nightly demons

Who so disrupt

The tattered dreams,

Said heard compose

Men of the sea!
