To wrestle with odds and ends and determine what goes overboard,

floating on this vessel of humanness,

Is to sail on, turbulence and violence under the surface of the water

Gliding forthwith in a determined direction

Looking out over the waters ahead … wavy… reflected… unstable…

Continuance of heart- taming, rudder-control, furnace-feeding

Diving deep to retrieve something lost

Coming up for air in gasps

The thing gained
