A figure’s head
Carved in the bowsprit
Carves a swathe through waves
Of an ocean that sings and plays
Leider from the springs of the Rhine
Ragas from the mouths of the Ganges
And the Mississippi delta
Swirling with blues
On dry land swimming
A self portrait painter
First laughs his head off
Then keeps a straight face
And running amok
With a malleable alphabet
A writer is let loose
In an open prison
