The Web Poetry Corner - Wesley A. Storer - Cape Flattery

Cape Flattery


Wesley A. Storer

It flatters the senses

In my recent hard scrabble travels
Beyond the Sequim rain shadow
To Cape Flattery's westerly point
Where the land and ocean adjoin
I crawled out over the edge
Hoping God would slice off my head
But I guess he didn't want to
There was an old sea lion down there
Swimming and snorting around a puffin
There was an island with a lighthouse
Yes I've lived my life alone
My soul as barren as a bone
In love just a luckless bum
My love as empty as a drum
All those who've ever seen me
Say I look queer as can be
Yet the straight life's all I've seen
No guns or knives have I owned
No criminal record have I sown
But I guess I'm lucky you see
I got to see Cape Flattery
