Parting/Party Ship

Party Ship - Kay Ryan
You are a
land I can’t
stand leaving
and can’t not.
My party ship
is pulling out.
We all have
hats. I try to
toot some notes
you’ll understand
but this was not
our instrument
or plan.


  1. A wonderful bittersweet poem about how life slips out of our grasp or control. I love the artwork, it matches the mood and subject perfectly. The poem's offhand, casual tone belies the serious intent. -Fudgy44

  2. please explain it in a simplest language
