ODOP: Destination

i gave up several fortunes
—small ones—as the ship wasn’t sailing here

and several estates i put up for sale,
and graced the first takers with all the keys,
circled their necks with golden chains by my own hands

a cure for my arthritis
i forswore, a hermit healer, as some
pains are more precious than safety

for this is the last
ship that shall ever sail
for Cebu city of stars

    This makes me think of some good fantasy story that I once read… can’t remember which. Well done.
