Beating the Odds

12 June 2022

By Philip Kuepper

It was a race
that challenged only itself.
A shell had been left
tied to the dock.
And it road the waves
as though the waves rowed it,
in place, from start to finish,
a race that couldn’t be lost,
a race that had already won itself
before it had even begun.
