When he walked to Wilby Watch
he went to find men
who were there to find men.
When he walked to the sea’s shore with
rocks in his pockets
he was planning a walk along the sea’s floor.
When he turned away from the sea that day
and the hanging rope didn’t kill him either
he chose to live and love.
When arrived the man who was his champion
he was brought flowers and offered a safe harbor
and he no longer felt “at sea”.
