This I regret

I guess it's too late to live on a boat,
to discuss the advantages,
or think of the possibilities.

Had we left when it was first an idea,
when we started to understand maps,
when there was a North.

Had we left behind our fears,
been taught detachment,
learned the seas from pirates

in our childhood books.

  1. I, for one, await 'talk like a pirate day'. because I have a terrible sense of direction, and only know North as a general arm wave,-that way-. ~
