Pledge of the Poet

Cruel that poets can’t wander
through their enchantment track
Without critic, like the old man
of the sea, upon his back.

Comment I am wondering about the old man of the sea. Is it an allusion to the Sindbad tale or Hemingway's masterpiece? The unanswered question adds beauty to the structure of the poem. Whichever way one looks at it, a poet's wandering could be cruel indeed.
