The Stevedore

by Catfish McDaris


Unloading your poems
from a ship of fog, your
melody floats through
the ruby lipped prostitute's
Dreams, her long silky
legs wrapped around
the moon, a rose
Between her teeth, a
mocking heart song
Insanity rips & wanes,
blood drips saxophones,
the wind blows away
the thunderbolts.
