THE WHITENESS OF THE WHALE

 

Ahab's leg was ripped away,

His manhood ruptured by the rage

Of an elemental force of nature,

Uncaged

 

Snow-blinded by an icy shadow

That slowly terrorised the sky

An all embracing whiteness fell

Upon his eyes

 

The light of God departed

And Ahab stood alone,

The sun dropped into the ocean

Like a stone

 

Day and night, he never rested.

Fixated on his goal,

The whiteness had eaten deep

Into his soul

 

For years he roamed the oceans

Under countless unfurled sails

Until finally he stood face to face

With the whale

 

Soaring up high above the storm

Tossed waves, his nemesis

Confronted him with the darkest

Secret kiss

 

The voice that roars inside us

Can never be killed or tamed

Or captured or constricted

By a name
