At the Helm

Those who steer the social aspect of this
Earthly vessel we honor in sculpture for
memory’s sake—Reverends, Doctors,
Mahatmas, Magnates, Prime Ministers,
Authors, Anchors—whatever title we use
to recall them—they’re “at the helm” of
our civilized space and, absent the rudder
of their history, reality’d be less seaworthy.
