Mango Eaters Make Dangerous Pirates

The sea is mango wine
fed by rivers,
kept full by clouds of mango mist
raining over mountains
of the wildest mango forests.

Fireball la Libre Sharpgrin was a born pirate.
Twenty-eight moons after her thirteenth birthday,
her cackles sailed into the Caribbean Sea.

No one warned the fish.

On her first day as a hired pirate,
Fireball consumed three sharks,
one forty-eighth of the Kraken (it was supersized)
and ate every window of Ursula’s cottage.

Years have gone
since the time of Fireball la Libre Sharpgrin’s
mid voyage snack;
dreamers are still searching the sweet waters, but
no one has been able to find Nemo.

NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Day 3 – Indulgences: “Craft a poem about spoiling your Self or the Self of another. Let decadence run wild.”
Ingredients: the Kraken, Ursula, Nemo (still missing) and mango cravings addiction.

Mango Eaters Make Dangerous Pirates“Mango Tree AKA Senor Mango”, by Leah Saulnier


I love mangoes. I’ve climbed tall-tall trees to get the last ripe fruit, to take it in my hand, to sink my teeth through its peel, to taste its juices on my tongue, while closing my eyes and grinning… because mango Nirvana is not just something a hippie fruit lover made up.

Yes, my Wicked Luvs, I’ve spoiled myself into the land of fruit-perfect via a mango bite. What about you? How do you celebrate the joys of indulgence? On Day 3 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, “Craft a poem about spoiling your Self or the Self of another. Let decadence run wild.”
