A Sail Away Thing

ANN DARROW: “What do I have to do?”

CARL DENHAM: “Just trust me and keep your chin up!”

It was a hand-shake deal. No memo. No contract.

A conversation over dinner explaining
his plan, just in broad outline, and then the hand-shake.

And then a boat to Skull Island and the monster.


To take you away
a boat’s the thing or one thing
a sail away thing.

Finding a lost place
starts by leaving a found place
a sail away thing.

Monsters and romance
create monsters and romance
a sail away thing.
