Periscopic


Through a full half circle.
A scientific job, or geographical.
Maps and charts were drawn, lighthouses, light markers against the horizon,
three months of water, and west of Australia.

The finger in the wind calculates rate of drift,
everyday after that I went to the beach.

And now a land locked mast, a western setting sun,
half imagined circles describe another line.

“Main induction open…
no proof of human life…
nuclear powered of course…
…during the last winter”

Went north for six months to the northern hemisphere,
everyday after that I went to the beach.
