Odd Characters

Skull and crossbones leer at me

from Pamela’s scarf once again the just so thing

for I shall be a pirate come Sunday.

She had a penchant for ghosts, zombies,

and all that makes the heart race.

But I prefer a bittersweet story, one with lovely odd characters,

affairs of the heart, a dog, perhaps a bear, ships at sea and

lighthouses that reliably bring All in to shore.
