starbuck's on-going inner-dialog



he doesn't hear me

the course is set


logic or argument 

will not penetrate


he is driven



i think not

he seeks to end his pain


he is mad to end his pain

the whale is a means to that end


i will spit and sputter and swallow my words

with my last breath


we are in pursuit of death

and i obey
