Mutiny

A sonnet about the things we left at sea

“Basilica,” Gentle Zacharias, May 2008

I kept it pretty quiet as I was doing the legwork — which is involved, and expensive, and I’m lucky that in my state I didn’t have to get surgery first — because I had some suspicions about how the news would land with my family.
