Baltimore Harbor

sailboats and high rises
seagulls and flags
water ripples in concentric circles
ducks preen and squabble 
among themselves 
the sunken iron tug
a nursery for ducklings
clack of metal on mast
tweet, hoo, cak cak
call of seagull
as they take flight
this chipped-paint picnic table
my parlor
the floor
littered with shells
