Tell me, Zelfirino, dearest Zelfirino
What, had Luna’s tides decreed
A reversal of fate on that white plastic beach
Would you have done? (Besides moan
And weep your long lost memories back to
Sapphire studded shells
‘neath the swallow stars so golden and bright?)
But night after night I listen to the whispers
Of crashing waves battering
Your iron oxide ribs
And remember you, Zelfirino
Your melancholy chimes swaying
Like old rags, entangled
In wind across the water
For your coastline boasts of shattered rhinestone
Zelfirino, dearest Zelfirino
The bedding of a fallen citadel built
Once upon a time
On delusional dreams of drifting through Doldrums
Deserted and dreary
