red wheel barrow meets the white whale – 24July13

So much depends
upon
a white whale
novel
written by H. Melville
about the lost
sailors

so much depends
upon
a deep sea
creature
pursued by mad
whalers
across the vast
ocean

So much depends
upon
a half mad
captain
driven by blood
vengeance
across the deep
ocean

so much depends
upon
a first mate’s
story
told with grim
details
about the dead
whalers

So much depends
upon
a white whale
story
critiqued by lit
scholars
inside the new
journal

[The Red Wheel Barrow]
