A Death in Melbourne, Southeast

A Death in Melbourne, Southeast


Not all at once,

But gradually.

Its slow demise

Borne witness

By two thousand eyes.

Once aloft

With gleaming prow

Breasting life’s currents.

Oh! The fulgor

Of union’s promise!

Now slumped

And despondent

While being eaten

From within.

Stolen upon

With practiced


Listing ever closer

To bed.



And unloved –

Where now

The dream

Of the eternal voyage?
