one

to the yacht
one hundred pounds
changes an image

rose gold is produced
in a limited edition
changing the image

of the royal yacht squadron
back in 1454 the image produces
the name becomes america

two

twice without hands
a tradition of artemis
colors adapted without

hands or a traditional center
the upper bridge and lower bridge
racing like a fascinating tourbillon

without hands or tradition
spinning dials located in time
tops fascinating spin

three

a logo then as helium escapes
red-lined with boat sails watch
explosive five-minute regatta

countdown to this logo then
heliumed with the boat’s sails’
seamstress embossed with a

five-minute regatta countdown
to the boat regatta countdown
to the helium red boat strap

four

sailors this is the oracle
sailing witch certifies the countdown
an eye-catching color

a limited rubber strap
incorporating titanium
sailors this is the start-time

a limited run necessary
to function produces extends
reproduces a limited rubber strap
