recurring dream where i’m a pirate

Poetry, Jules Krueger

this i remember

man bound tightly to 

his post atop a 

stumbling ship of 

open shirts bleeding nerves

crusted treasure

perfect indent in between

off white collars

host of hair

smell of salted sea

i taste deep with

bar bed tongue

what life for me 

what life for me

i catch you 

wriggling on my teeth

you bottom feeder

brown mouthed eater

salivating in my

ear do you hear me 

through the seashell

tell me good hold me
