A Pirate's Soul Chapter 1Chapter 1:: Katsu's Offer
The yearly festival was coming to Foosha Village. It's taken months to prepare for the one week of nothing but fun and adventure. Live music, fresh food, and partying till your legs break (literally, three years ago). People from nearby islands came to this festival. Even some royals up from Goa come down to celebrate.
"Jade, I think you're old enough to participate in the Talent Show." Makino said, wiping down the counter at the Party's Bar.
"I dunno. Maybe." I was twelve years old, the awkward stage where you're not a teen and you're not a kid anymore.
"You should sign up for the concerts. You can share your music with everyone. I know how good you are, and the customers love it when you play on the piano," she jerked her head towards the small piano in the corner.
"I'll think about it. Probably not." I said.
"Oh you will, and I'll make you a pretty dress to wear. How's that?"
I turned and glared at her, "No." and left the bar.
The next day Woop Slap appr
MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
