sails on idle

I had me a ship

waiting

sails on idle

where none was expected

though they saw

the fire light glow in my eyes

thinking I’d stick around

forever

never mind the

treat me how they wanted

pretending not to hear

the match strike

long protracted sighs

& as I sailed away

watching our bridges burn

I heard them wail

how could you

treat us so badly?

all we ever wanted

was to teach you

to learn
