The Swim


Poesy plus Polemics

adrift in an outrushing
midnight black sea
beg titanic Asteria
light up the stars
guide a swim to Orion
climb up for red rest
on his Betelgeuse shoulder
yell back down to home
that you made the much
vaunted middleway mark
then dive into the turn
for that Big Dog at play
in much deeper dark waters
redrawing your strokes
for his Sirius nose
whitest gem in the night
where to die in its flame
gives your light to forever
