Sport 35: Winter 2007


page 128


Never disparage the Ego
it is your surfboard
your sail.

Remember how you deplored
its flying colours
its love of surfaces
the way it sailed past pain
eyes always
on the brilliant horizon?

Without it soon
you will find yourself
alone in the water
and on a day when wind
beats green waves brown
you will accept
the salt fact of the sea
and you will drown.
