bottled

There is a
note in a bottle

It is
written in Chinese

Translated it
means

Something about
a dragon

And a
princess

But no one
translates it

It just
floats around

Passing
fishing boats and drug smugglers

Looking down on
pirate treasure

And octopi

The princess
has only dragon breath to keep her warm

And the
dragon can’t fly

he watches the sky through his scaly eyes

And the
princess tells him stories

Of ancient
kingdoms

they are trapped together forever

it seems

so the dragon
doesn’t bother telling her that most of what she tells him is lies

He was there
back then

Before the
bottle

and the
waves
