The Third Departure

The Third Departure

Never mind the stranger in the 
hat squinting against the wind.
With a wink, their face appears 
closed in retaliation to the unrelated 

Closed is their stance towards the 
toothed batacuda threatening their stay.
Open is the fire, their showing eye
The pin-pricked heart beneath 
the tattered coat. 

Another explosion, they
cringe at the noise, dangling their
legs from the deck. They comment, 
It's a fine day, is it not? 

It's hard to disagree. 


  1. LoL, just what I usually say at days like that

  2. I was looking through some comments after posting and saw a comment from you about helping making my blog even better. After seeing that the date was 1 year and 3 months ago I knew immediately I had to apologize for my rude behavior of not responding to you for over a year and I sincerely hope you did not take it personally that I did not respond. If you still would like to help with my design I would truly appreciate but if not I hope that this apology can at least make up for the my unfriendly actions.

    By the way I really like reading your poems and theories

    Hi Destiny!

    I really like your blog, and appreciate all the work you put into it, as well as your taking the time to accept feedback from viewers. Thanks! :)

    I don't know if this would be considered spam, but Sophia EmeraldBlossom (The Artsy Theurgist) is having her second annual contest, and I'm the only one who turned out. I promised I'd spread the word, so I thought I'd start here. Tell all your friends!
