Life Saving Station


Life Saving Station

Upon this shell-and-seaweed bulwark

I was an oasis reviving the wrecked sailor;

An ark holding victims of the deep

Before their final journey home.

Now I watch with boarded eyes

Waves advance and recede &

Tankers lumber across the horizon.

To restore life is my purpose, my faculty.

But in waiting, I neglect my own.
