Poetry: Pirate's Treasure

Here is poem # 20 for the poetry pledge drive. This one is about one of my least favorite experiences.

Pirate's Treasure

They study the blue
Lines snaking
Just under the surface -

My pale arm a pirate's
Treasure map.

I explain how elusive
It is, what they're looking for.
I point out where

Others have tried
And look away, whistling,
Wishing them luck.
