The Wreck

Like cloud astride the midnight sky

Their cold reflection in the deep

A lightless world, the silenced cry

Of ghosts of ocean’s muffled sleep

 

Swallowed by the silver crest

Of waves upon the moonlight cast

They failed the ocean’s bitter test

These sunken echoes of the past

 

Now rusted, crushed, made home anew

The victims of Poseidon’s wrath

Have found themselves a different crew

That lurk within the aftermath
