BROC RIBLET – BALLAST

Ballast

Okay fine,
the ballast said.
Fine, fine do what
you want.
I will stay
here while waters
bob.
And ship strays.
And wood gets wet
with tide.

The ballast said
no, wait.
So tired of
passive.
Track your own
whereabouts.
Head count
with the lighthouse.
I want to not
do this job.
And bid aloha
to safety.
