[mood |inscrutable]

lying on the deck
my mouth opened to the rain stars
I was happy again to be alone

no interest in the feast below
I said it told myself
perhaps that was the truth

so I sailed my little boat
on the night sea
sometimes spotting ships
sometimes trading treasures
I hoarded stories given stolen
and counted myself king

and shy against that wall
I was emperor of oceans
and no one knew to tell me no

yes an emperor I used to be
and sometimes don those robes
I find inopportunities
like parties
