"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

the boys of halifax

pressed up against  but at least not  press-ganged

that sounds intense  tragic  18-55 yr. olds kidnapped

for the king  having a beer  then to disappear  for 5 years !

 

the sailors of Halifax are:

young

lean

meanmachines

 

they wink at every corner  & beckon a girl into dank rooms

stonethick   amber beers   sly sidling up

 

with any luck  the lugubrious one  all doe eyes  lingering & wet

will crook his elongated forefinger

 

& take me home

to his bearded mama

__

 

Fall  2021  ..save me from overwrought Haligonian chowders..
