-had
 walked on the waves
  of
            vipers coaxed of
           chains around your head,    A medusa 
          let 
          out; into
          circles of handcuffs.
        
           Beneficiaries           (caught hair streaming, waves sat bey
              under the                                   ond)
           crescent, bone on the gritted sky, tried their luck.
                     
           

still upward
            eyes, yours as
       an offering, a wreath above crows
       nest, your hand waving
               marked some apology for in-     (went here) 
           attention
                 tallied a
               top the deck of
          some sinking boat the
           captain feigns indifference
            to the rising
           water.
                     
          Rattled in your
          terrace the
           dusk had lashed
          itself at the
      irises -
      thrust into some flinching white-
      were your clothes still in tatters?
      hung
          from your shoulders
          for 5
      more minutes
       caught in dawn's fingers in fury,
       fell the waves
       onto your skyward eyes.
