At Sea

Taking on water
Don’t think I can stay afloat
I’ll stay here awhile longer
Amongst clouds and ghosts and tangled rigging
When I set sail
So many moons ago
I never knew the cruelty
The avarice
The ignorance
I’d encounter
Now I’m tired
So tired
Can’t explain myself
Any better than that
Any more than I can explain
The reason for rainbows or laughter
You can look at the clouds and see science
You can look at the clouds and see shapes
I look at the clouds and I see home
