Midwatch

written by: David Molnar

@sandiegovoyager

 

Steaming as before, independently
Which is to say alone
On a black sea with white accents
I am responsible for the souls
Asleep while I keep watch
Scanning the horizon for running lights
Scanning the radar screen for contacts
That might not be displaying lights
No surprises on my watch!  But
There are always things you don’t know
That you don’t know.
Above there are eternal stars
Below are myriads of sea creatures
Neither has the slightest concern
For my concerns.
