THE WATCH


                                  the relentless incoming morning tide

the sea is wild tonight
splintering against rocks
tossing arcs of white spray
high into the air
high into the pale light of the troubled moon

if you have problems
now is the time
throw them overboard
flotsam them
jetsam them
watch the merciless waves carry them away
fuming
cursing
shaking their fierce fists

then watch them  return
on the relentless  incoming  morning tide
pleading
begging
steepled hands pressed flat together
on pallid lips
