POEM: Ahab

rockwell kent mobydick

Ahab

the
unabashed
pursuit
of a series
of white whales
has left me
lashed
to the wheel
of a drifting
ship
searching
the thick sky
for a patch
of blue

The first part of this poem is a slightly paraphrased version of a footnote from this piece by Chris Higgins. The illustration is by Rockwell Kent.
