sail boat

and
out on the white topped
waves
the sail boat
sailed
as it
was born to do.

she could be
lying
on a fancy bed
in
a ritzy hotel

but she had chose
lying
on piss soaked
newspaper
on a cigarette burnt
carpet
in a run down
apartment
in any city
in any state

excepting
of course

sobriety.

and
out on the white topped
waves
the sail boat
sailed
as it
was born to do.

as the stars
twinkle
thousands of years
dead
by the time
we smile
believing
they shine
for our eyes
alone.

drifting
where the winds
push
our tragically
unfurled
sails
to drive us into
hidden sandbars
or
dashed upon
the rocks of the
shore itself
coral disasters
whispered
over pints of rum
as the fuses
burn
to drive the evil
spirits away.

and
out on the white topped
waves
the sail boat
sailed
as it
was born to do.
