Sweet Ginger Beer & A Tall Ship

Telling stories through a bottle

sweet pressed ginger beer and a tall ship

sailing through the heart lines

of a dozen young girls, listening

while the elders talk amongst themselves

ignoring the requirement to teach the uninitiated

our daughters, imagining a timeless connection to this island

grow up restlessly in cycles of desire

plastic bottle on the foreshore

washed up inside the spirit home of our present day

recycling on the way home

another evening out
