blackened clouds roiling
above the waves, whitecaps striving
against the shore.
Inside Atlantic's confusion, one
sleek fishing boat hoists its catch,
a 647 lb tuna; lobster, mackerel
and codfish awaiting turns
families wrapped in boardwalk
cheers, sharing space by stacked
I want a chance to race the wind,
and bring home a bragging
catch in my own Lady Shelby boat.
