Blue Monsoon
by Terry Brinkman




Irish Blue Monsoon poetry

Boston Blue- Rooms at Ten Shillings a week

Sun seldom shines here

Sea cook wears rumpled stockings  

Ax to grind drinking ships rum

Steams of coffee blew all day

Not worthy her blue eyes

Pre-nativity post-mortality fallen

Candle she stuck in a bottleneck

Not for her to horrify

Last flow of Champaign’s pee down the toilet

Like a burr sticking in side



a black line
