fore & aft

we bought sailing sessions,
a secret place to be cradled, your hull,
the beautiful part –
more bow, less stern.
we learned:
sun and water hypnotize & nauseate
depending on the meal;
we were setting like a holiday table,
sparse & enough,
until you took a mouthful and spit out
your husband’s dinner placard.

photos should be taken
before
the turkey is a carcass.
