The World As Boat

Is peopled world boat

Commodious, attempting

Channel maneuvers

‘Mid sustainability

Lacking perfectly pristine

Material?Ā  It’s

Carrying burdened

Passengers—hungry, angry

Manners forgotten

Wearied by lengthy voyage

Sea’s tumultuous trial…

They long to be free

Of cramped quarters, restrictions

Repetitious tales

Passports may be lost, questioned…

Hopes, incentive: cloudy sky.
