The Tortoise & the Sea

Bestride a dinghy on the sea
far from arid dune adrift
where no deserter should ever be
the tortoise sails in slow dignity

For better to be absurdity
An unearthed land-bound refugee
found floating on a well-seamed skiff

than a half-hooked fish half-caught between
bone-cold tides of what could have been
and the lukewarm currency
of becalmed what if!
