Daily Dose

From Decanting: Selected and New Poems 1967 - 2017, by Stuart Friebert


That's the quiet patch between
heavy breakers, just outside

the mouth of a narrow inlet to
the sea.  You'd better bide your

time, maneuver just beyond the
rough water, pick a slatch, gun

your boat right through or you'll
be washed to a place where

just a single candle's lit.  Amen.
