“I’ve seen things your pupils wouldn’t believe.”, Pete said like a scholar.
“Sea Servants off the shoulders of evening gowns
I’ve shipped out with sailsmen, played baseball with giants.
I’ve walked the Sands of Thyme.
I was fit to be tied just to hear the Sirens howl at Wolf Bay.
I’ve fought delirious treatments in the Decanted Forrest.
I’ve done every dive from Pearl to Scuba.
I was lost once but now I’m sound.
I want to come home Packet!”
All Laurel Lie said when I drove Pete up to the O’Dysseus place was:” You’ve been gone fifteen years, your dinners cold.”
