Captain Hook's Lover Boy

Captain Hook’s Lover Boy

“John was dreaming
of Neverland again”
—Geraldine McCarrghean
Peter Pan in Scarlet

First it was a play—
Then it was a book
Then it as a money pot

I stroked Peter’s head—
His shiny hair with him
Visiting me once again

Something bulged under—
The sheets, I pulled them
Back, it was a Cutlass

It was short and sharp—
Shaped like a mean hook
Up past his bellybutton
