Mending Nets

Dockworkers on strike, the ocean gray
and choppy. Wind whips the rigging 
of a sailing ship with its weathered hag – 
figurehead once lovely in a gentler
age. What Time weaves of us. A line 

from memory flits to places farther 
inland, when you were younger, every-
thing graced with light: the rain, 
the chickweed, and the burdock leaf. 
Tomorrow, another ship comes in.
