Sixty-nine looks back across the sea
In search of land where there is only sky.
X's mark where sunken treasures lie,
The galleons long lost to memory,
Years gone beneath the waves that greet the eye.
Nostalgia hungers for identity,
Intent on what, not interested in why,
Needing need, ever poised to cry,
Embracing the sweet pain of finity.
