The Schooner

Conrad, you old schooner, sent from your cove,
Of souls, your hero braved an ocean, then
Drifted past a shoal. Now landing on a
Shanghaied beach, he trekked into the wasteland,
Where choking plumes of ash rained hard upon
The columns. And death did pause to taste the
Seeds, the woe, and rank of slaver's greed, then
Pandered his familiars breathe, charnel
Vapors from its salt mines.

So, is this in reference to Joseph Conrad, the ship in Connecticut?

Yes, my favorite writer. But "Heart of Darkness".
