Stanley Pelter: leaving home?

his boot noise
at the sea edge
silent oyster search
he left home to learn how to.
try as he might
and, some say, even harder than that,

he failed.
others feel he did not.
those who claim he did

are part of the same question:
“why” all silently mouth
“did he leave home to learn how to?”
