Ship in the Sea

by erikash03

Ship in the sea,
steady on violent waves.
Ship in the sea,
build a new world for me.

Machines groan in the delightful splash
and saturate their bodies with humidity.
Flags of forgotten unions whistle
a pirate tune to the wind.
Dreams are locked away
in garish chests and metal coffins.

A tattoo for each flesh
that lays crooning in exotic nests.
A scar for each storm
lashed out in lovely shambles.
Gut rotting with powdered death,
head soaked in its own bliss.

Ship in the sea,
sailing to slick harbors.
Ship in the sea,
build a new world for me.
