Sighted on the side of a ferry.

"Look, boats of mercy embark from our heart at the oddest knock." [1]

Yesterday I woke from an hour's doze and dream. You weren't home yet. I pattered about the apartment, disconcerted, certain that I was expecting someone else, in addition to you, but I couldn't remember whom. My heart beat wild. I had my eye lined up with the hole in the door and my hand on knob.
