THE MARK ISLAND LIGHT
The Mark Island Light beacons a safe seaway
for sailors working the Penobscot Bay.
But at night in my bedroom dorm
listening alone to its mournful horn
ghosts stir to haunt the dark.
It makes me rueful to know
that every fifteen seconds...
on the dot...
that horn will continue to blow
whether I am here to hear it
