Lounge Chairs

Lounge Chairs

Lounge chairs wait,
as excursion-goers
trickle back aboard.

Beyond the glass,
resting
cruise ships wait,
as do their
lounger brothers.

A short
escape from
disrupting
thoughts,
we slept
whenever
we stopped
moving.

A stranger
to him still,
her beauty
overwhelms his
monkey brain.

His desire is
to do no harm,
cause no pain,
(his resistance
may crumble),
feeble cries
of his surrender
fading in the
chilly breeze.

High winds
made stingray
snorkelling
a danger,
a taxi ride
to Hell
and back
were there
was left.

His memories
fade as
time marches
unstoppably past.
And he
must follow,
struggling
if he will.
