sullen sunset

a lonesome heartbeat
out into the heat
of early evening
a ping
like a sonar
bouncing back
to show an empty ocean
devoid of life

a derelict vessel
lost on the waves
of another sullen sunset at sea
the albatross
rides the wind above
as he writes another missive
to float in a bottle
on the water
