Excerpt

IV. Sea Shanties of Old VT

These are the songs
we used to sing: Will the circle
be unbroken shallow oh
shallow brown I'm a fool
to do your dirty work

sweet Sally MacLennan will I see
you tonight bass! how low
can you go on a downtown train
you got me ringing hell's bells
this is my condition


and we saw St. Elmo's Fire
spitting ions in the ether

start the riot

     now
