Today is the feast day of Antinous the Navigator (Ekklesia Antinoou).
I offer Him this poem:
the clip of a fast boat cuts through swells
the waters dark as the night sky
for the Navigator is victorious
in his struggle with the powers
who hold, who bind, and
like a porpoise surfacing,
stronger than the shark
more clever than
his ship bursts forth!
can you see it
in the light
that Star under whose light we can navigate?
