1855: Moby Dick Chapter XXXV


Our Stand at the Mast Head



We fish away from the mangroves,
staring out, praying for bites.
We know to keep weather eyes open.
But I think of forms I loved.
There on the dock we stand,
casting for dreams on our lines.
But I dream of pantheism,
not of fish far removed.
