A Canvas on the Tide

Here’s a short short/prose poem that I wrote about when one of my best friends, Robb Grimes and I went sailing with his dad off the coast of Mexico. It was memorable both for the awe of where we were, and the tyranny of our sailboat’s captain. Either way, when we talk about it now, all we can do is laugh. With all the curmudgeon demeanor we both¬†aquired¬†at sea, we wouldn’t trade that trip for anything.
