Strong Female Pirate by Dale Innis on Midjourney
If I would have met you…just anywhere in my life,
a bar, at the produce market or merely walking down the street,
I would have thrown myself at your feet
“ Hello! Yes please!”
Make me a pirate just like you.
Just looking into your eyes, I can sail the oceans
you have seen,
the last light of the day
when the sun steams on the horizon
where it’s put down, under, until the next day.
I hang off your arm, like an extension of your blouse
Gorgeous pirate that makes me dream
of the rolling sunrise, rolling over by your side,
There is no doubt in my mind we were meant
to watch shows together, we can’t get on Netflix;
to cruise those forbidden seas , dodging the authorities.
My country is labeled a pirate sanctuary..and I have no doubt
yours is at the top of the list.
“You’re not allowed to see this in your country”
is our new National Anthem.
for my boldness, but I have no doubt,
between the two of us,,.
we can figure out a way
to not miss one single episode,
just because, Prime, Hulu, FX and HBO
have labeled us renegades.
I’d gladly go to the gallows in your arms,
You drop-dead gorgeous. rebellious, charismatic pirate…. you.
