"The destiny of the world is determined less by the battles that are lost and won than by the stories it loves and believes in." -- Harold Goddard

Chapter 88 of the book Aiona's Poems
can mean so many things
"Six Feet" by Aiona
A fathom
The depth to place coffins
The distance new friends must stay apart

Is it deep
Enough to keep them safe
Planned prevention of touching others

Side by side
Though not in the same boat
We spin and turn in separate worlds

The book continues with Deep Fried Gizzards. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
The image is the sunrise from my boat on November 1, 2020. We were social distancing from SV Oreanda who was anchored east of us. We didn't know them. And we won't get to know them during lockdown. No more impromptu sailor potlucks. Oh well. We brought our own beer, anyway. :)

We anchored in a depth of eighteen feet with a scope of 1 to about 3.5. Luckily it wasn't terribly windy. If we had let our more scope, we could run into our anchored neighbors in the night. Tide rips and eddies mean that we don't always spin in the same direction, and I have found that no one here typically uses more than 1:5 scope, for some reason, even though textbooks all say use 1:7 scope.
