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

or not.
