The Boat in the Window

The Boat in the Window

Well. This is lovely
being in the window.
I don’t have to worry
about back breaking storms
barnacles and sprung butts
or fishscales on my deck.
I’m done with blood.
I’ve a fine view.
People like to see me
on their way to the harbour.
It does sometimes though
make me a little sad
when she opens the window
and I smell the sea.
by Iain Finlay Mcleod
