Continuation

Some birds build nests in smokestacks,
all is well until the furnace fires.
Some wasps are born without stingers
and daub  hives over loose wires.
The best bad days are behind us now
The sky has cleared, the water smooths at last,
the drowned are meditating in their graves
the living seek purpose in the masts.
