The Galway Hooker

By Mike Bell Poetry No comments

There’s a fishing boat off Galway –
it bears
your maiden name

The fisherman don’t know you –
yet –
but will
by close of day –

you were mounted on my stemhead
your bared breasts fixed my course

I sailed with you
and your fishermen

through rages
and dark squalls
