Ridley the Pirate
Ridley the Pirate
By Arran J Middleton
Staring at the cold darkness of space
Through a window as clear as fresh ice,
Stands a creature of a glacial heart,
A creature known as. . .Ridley.
Standing tall with beady gold eyes
And purple scales on his draconic body,
The pirate flexes his thin clawed arms
As he sees the universe, its coldness in his eyes.
With a long cruel smile on his vicious beak
Like a thin slash glaring outwards,
Ridley spies on a nearby planet
Vibrant and alive, perfect for plundering.
His long bony tail flexes behind him,
A murderous whip with a life of its own.
Viper-like in its motions, and just as deadly
Its bones rub together, making a fatal hiss.
He arcs his wings out, resplendent on him
Like the stiffened robe of a great emperor.
Thin purple skin between large green folds
Of golden skin, awaiting to feel wind under them.
This merciless creature, whose soul must lie somewhere
Stands on his ship, packed with an expendable army.
Pirates and thieves, backstabbers and
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
