Default That Time

On still waters
the coffin comes in quietly
its blunt prow
snuffling death.

Queequeg coils his line
and reflects
on the chart in the water.

It is the time again.
The time to sail
The time to nail
the sun and stars
into the prophecy of wake.

The coffin bears its burden,
with freeboard enough
to take another through the westings
out to where Leviathan and Kraken wait.
