The Little Boats Of Charles Fort

THE LITTLE BOATS OF CHARLES FORT

 

The little boats of Charles Fort

Bob in the seaways above the Bronx

They’re ready to go.

 

                             Bob on, brave  boats,

You carry glad tidings.

 

                             Actually,

We’re talking boxes not boats exactly

But each is freighted with hundreds of notes

On joyous things that actually happened

But couldn’t have done.  For instance, the times

When seafood tipped from the sky in summer.

 

The world is not explicable.

The world in fact is extremely odd.

Let guns go off and a very big flag
Be loosed to the wind as the boats bob out.
