POETRY: JOHNNY HUERTA – Spirit the Sailor

Spirit the Sailor


A sailor named spirit

Found himself lost

Out at sea

With his ship in decay

And his body in atrophy

He sat down to finish his last poem

About a scarab beetle

That escaped a pharaohs

Tomb moments before they sealed it

He placed the passage

In a bottle and

Jumped into

The dark salty water
