Gulf Stream


Poesy plus Polemics

Illustration from lt.umn.edu Illustration from

swift river that runs
through the heart
of a lumbering sea
carries African warmth
moist ghosts of Atlantis
in restless deep currents
aswirl round the treasures
of Blackbeard through
green Caribbean lanes
slingshot to north by
northeast cutting course
across plunder routes
red cries of Viking clans
shrill on the waterwind
crashed to its purpose
against windward isles
fomenting the storms
that sweep Europe
with seasons of history
