Unmooring

At 5:21am I wonder if I could piece a poem out of lists.

Use nouns from the ‘to pack’ group
some crossed
some still to be accounted for
employ verbs
in the ‘to do’s’
that convey a sense
of organized
accomplishment

I’m like a big barge docked
but getting ready
to slowly move on out
to sea

my decks are abustle
with preparation
sounds
escape
from my vessel
indicating
inevitable motion

surrounding waters
ripple

it’s been a while
since my lines have been unleashed
hope I remember
out on open water
that once the course is set
just cruise
