it's an epic journey we crave,
craven us, the small and numb
we set our heroes out to sea.
through whirlpools of barbed-wire surf.
we watch their struggle---
sea/horizon wave crests/troughs latitude/longitude drowning/swimminng
we smile as we cry to the gods
to Neptune for saviour.
the ocean breathes in waves.
ships list sailors listen, breathless
the ocean rambles
exhales tsunamis, inhales shorelines
our heroes straggle from freezing waves
to feigned bravos and one-hand claps turn away chants
go back to the seaweeds
