News is

ships have arrived

on the very day we said.

They're there

now, downriver,

a mile or so, let's meet them.


use the accent

we said to, and remember,


the whole language

we said, like nothing ever


made up entirely

of what they'll think is lovely

but is only,

in the end,

us praying they will leave now.
