Poetry Maybe #38: Warboyz

Photo by Stefano Parisi on

won’t you be borrowing from the ocean

and giving it trouble and noise

it was in Betty Crocker’s book of potions

for rehabilitating warboyz

the phantom valentine was unwritten

can we multiply

the look of a sailor smitten

and call it to testify

a blue dragon paints

a portrait of charismatic

thief and saint

once so on edge and now so pragmatic

set the heat to scorch

leave a beloved scar

think of memories from the front porch

when the sailor was pirate of our hearts
