Looking Out, and In


1 - "The harbour is an ironing board:
Flat-iron tugs dash smoothing toward
any shirt of a ship, any pillowslip
of a freighter they decree
must be ironed flat as washing from the sea"

2 - "And now as I grow in years
I feel at times like an old
violin played on by a master
and you dear city are
the maestro drawing the bow
over the sensibilities of my mind
echoing the music
of my days."
