Breakwater Marquette, Michegan

Technically, not a sea at all, Lake Superior churns up its share of sea storms. There is not a lot to do in Marquette, Michigan: Except for high school drivers to "buzz the gut", Or cruise past a courthouse where "Anatomy" was filmed. You could smoke dope or drink underage Under a disused, fourteen story ore pocket dock. Rusted off shards of flat black paint Fall on the gently sloshing waves. There is a breakwater of dumped cement blocks That has a chain-linked fence and sign that says, DANGER! NO TRESPASSING! But of course, the young ones do. And better yet if a sea storm comes. Maritime law forbids including those who drown As sailors lost at sea.
