And the pirate stories stopped

May 2011, Istanbul

Soaring over the sea
with the wind in her sails and a knife in her teeth
at the helm of a ship on its way to a distant shore
Bermuda or Thailand
an uncharted island

Sandy, we’re all getting older
What will they do with us
when they are through with us?
Sandy, what are we sailing for?

~ Evelyn Evelyn, "Sandy Fishnets"
