Smugglers and Spies

 

Smugglers and Spies


Here’s the gift of the gap in the fence
we squeeze through sneaky
the pirate-ship portal
smugglers and spies
we are the masters of ropes and ladders
barrels spill with glint of gold
dusty gems and pearls

This town is ours
we know the secret spyways
shortcuts hide-outs backways byways
our pockets full of real
treasures
seagull skull, glossy shell, crab claw
our lives light
as the horizon
