Resolution – Penny Blackburn

Resolution 

In that farthest place he lost his will
to keep sailing
over treacherous depths;
saw the opportunity
to make an antimony fortune,
grow ore-bound roots
into the newly settled land;
made static his life,
beached upon the scalding, scolding sands
of Resolution Bay.
