Our pilot on the Delaware
offers to show you
his laptop.

These are the buoys, he says;
I know exactly where I am
to within a metre.


This is the same way we track
our missiles
and drones.

You stare
for a moment
and say oh.

Then remembering your manners
add
thank you for showing me.

You might disagree with half of it, but you’ll enjoy reading all of it. Try your first 10 weeks for just $10
