Lady Lemons: Fearsome Lady Pirates -
Thursday’s Foxy Doxy: Anne Bonny and Mary Read
This week is special because I have not one foxy lady, but two! Anne Bonny and Mary Read were Caribbean pirates in the early 18th century, the infamous lesbian lovers who dressed and caroused like men, and all around bad girls.
Anne was born…
Bonny’s last words to her former lover, Calico Jack Rackham, upon his imprisonment and soon-to-be-hanging were “if you had fought like a Man, you need not have been hang’d like a Dog.”

For Apollo, my Twin:
Keep on trucking
despite screens and fleeting moments
and can’t see and welcome to poetry.
My friends in high abodes and in my fields of daisy thoughts
assure me that
Spring is Coming,
and I tell them the same.
Cosmic energies are constantly shifting;
it’s terrifying to see how much everything is always falling apart
but a part of me
enjoys the quiet decay
and the way change
out of every leaky faucet.
Eventually you learn to love the dripping–
It falls in a rhythm not unlike my own heartbeat
and that, I think,
