Treasure Island

Captain Cur

(England)

Captain Cur

My pirate's flag is wars invitation,
of black canine flesh and blanched human bone.
Flown on rags that defy the nations
atop weathered planks I walk alone.

Native bride, you stand adorned before me,
with salt stained cheeks and moonlit eyes.
My vessel's pride is honed by the cruel sea;
her tall masts reach toward brutal skies.

[Hata Bildir]
