Much Gratitude

I would like to thank J.Golder for bringing the work of sculptor Ben Platt-Mills to my attention. Without this I would of never been inspired to write these poems.

Emilia


A 270 Ton vessel,
A voyage of discovery,
An adventure of ambition,
An expedition of madness,
An aspiration to become the initial murderer.

We sail the Antarctic searching for liquid gold
Stored in gargantuan living barrels.

To capture the Whale,
Is to capture an angel.
To slay the Whale,
Is to slay Neptune.
To drain the Whale,
Is to drain God himself.

Only with you could we become Gods amongst Men.
My sweet Emilia
