'Sconset beach, where the first of the fishmonger Gliddens
used to launch his boat and bring in his codfish.

'Sconset is at least 30 degrees.
Not good for swimming, even in the summer.
The bluff has a walkway between
It's fun to look in the windows.
The deserted houses have green lawns,
The view from the cliff.
Across the Atlantic to Portugal.
The winter community is small,
but the lights are still on
