Spanish Ship - Poem by Rosa Mayfair

In the distance a ship, with sails of mist and fire,
what treasure is hiden inside the belly of the whale
how many men have been swallowed whole
and how many more must be swallowed

from the coast of Spain it has come
let off its leash with blood in its nostrils
rows of sharpened teeth gleaming in the light
of sailors lanterns

from the jagged coast I watch it getting ever nearer
the hours is at hand, the candel is melting
the grave yard lamps burn brightly
the devil is in the watch tower
