anything can happen. You find
yourself in a catamaran skimming

waves that shimmer fifteen shades
of sea-green, dark sky alive,

tinged purple, chartreuse, gold.
Wind whistling, whipping, wailing

twin sails, clangs and bangs

of your feet feel the velvet lap
of water, the flickering hum

of constellations, maps
to rudder you forward.
