    Chatham Reach, Medway


    In the clinkered tender,

    standing, he sculls one handed,

    a cupped cigarette in the other,

    sculpting an infinity of eights,

    wrist-rolling the transomed oar

    through sepia coloured water.

    A merchant seaman

    drab suited as befits

    life in the Fifties.

    Into the morning mists

    of memory he drifts,

    from pier-head to the red

    and white hull of the Maga Dan.
