Whence I Stand


My field of view is rife with blues;
Likewise the music in my ear.
Such blues to soothe me from all wear – 
All wonderfully calming hues.

Sea-gazing on deck, John Mayer on my iPod.
I am jaded from the long shift.
As I battle vertigo, he sings to me:
Gravity is working against me; gravity wants to bring me down.”
I concur.

Later he croons:
Whiskey, whiskey, whiskey,
Water, water, water, sleep.
As there’s no whiskey offshore, I sip some water and go to bed.

WordPress suggested a post themed Perspective.
