The Mayport Sonnets

Introduction. These poems were all written 1989 to 1991 while I was assigned to the USS Luce, guided missile destroyer that was homeported in Mayport, Florida, hence the name, The Mayport Sonnets. The first two, #1 and #2 were god-awful and I left them off. There are more details in my memoir project chapter from the period here: https://raymond945.sub…
