Poem introduction

'The Cormorant' is dedicated to the one lonely male of the species that lives in the resort where I live. He's been there for years; he's never found a mate. I don't think there are any female cormorants around, but this is for him. I wrote this in the Café Schmidt in Amsterdam in a rainstorm in February 2002.
