Spirit worn down by years of hotel slavery, dreaming of rescue by an island hopping pirate ship,
she stares at the horizon, planning her anger when she leaves.
She will be merciful, to those who have not been cruel to her.
She almost smiles a secret smile, for there will be happiness, but not here.
