Nautical Disaster

I had this dream where I relished the fray
And the screaming filled my head all day.
It was as though I'd been spit here, settled
In, into the pocket of a lighthouse on some
Rocky socket, off the coast of France, dear.

One afternoon, four thousand men died in
The water here and five hundred more were
Thrashing madly, as parasites might in your
Blood. Now I was in a lifeboat designed for
Ten and ten only, anything that systematic
Would get you hated. It's not a deal nor a
Test nor a love of something fated. The
Selection was quick, the crew picked and
Those left in the water got kicked off our
Pantleg and we headed for home.

Then the dream ends when the phone rings,
"You doing alright," he said it's out there most
Days and nights, but only a fool would
Complain. Anyway Susan, if you like, our
Conversation is as faint as a sound in my
Memory, as those fingernails scratching on
My hull.
