He sends S.O.S. from his life raft
on the sea, poems ascending
puffs of colored smoke
the world oblivious to his dying
need, a body of work, that soon
will stand, as an obelisk of coral
on the bottom of the ocean
focal point of form, oral order
abscissa ordinate, within a liquid
flow, set in place, monument
in remembrance, of his devotion.
