There am I . . .


There am I – pillar in the middle of the sea
An aura of majesty around me,
A lifeless pillar
In the middle of the Sea.
The unruly waves crack and spit
For miles and miles around me,
United and strong,
Smug in each other’s company.
But I have to stand
And stand and stand and stand,
As if time has frozen
And all are dead.

23rd May 1996
